At this time, we are not able to accept any more youth fund applications as we now in the process of fundraising.

Over the past 3 years, our Youth Fund has successfully provided young people with a wide range of items such as laptops, bikes, books & interview clothes to support them in education, employment or training. Please see below some of the testimonials from the young people who have benefited from the Youth Fund!

I’d just like to take the time to say thank-you to you and URPotential for helping me and providing me with the uniform and kit that I needed to complete me Beauty therapy course at college. With the kit you provided for me I have been able to complete full training and so far have achieved individual courses by being assessed on completing treatments on clients. From receiving the kit from yourself I have successfully completed a gel nail course, a manicure course and have begun doing eye treatments, eyelashes, eyebrow shaping and tinting. 
Without the support and funding from URPotential I wouldn’t have been able to afford the kit or uniform to complete the course at college in my situation. It has helped me grow and feel a lot more confident attending knowing I have all I need on hand without having to worry about how I am going to manage. I am really enjoying my course and it have given me my social life back after having two young children. I finally have my time and I am doing something I really enjoy.

Thank you all once again for the kind generosity you have to Josh. This has benefited in many ways such as giving him back his own independence and allowing him to make his own way to his college course and home without relying on others for transport. He is very please you helped and has asked me to say a huge thanks from him.

Thankyou so much for the iPad. It has helped so much. It helps with quiet time. To calm down before bedtimes. It also helps in the car on journeys due to anxiety. We have apps to help with learning. We have apps that spell letters out. Simple maths apps. We are very grateful for this.
