Vulnerable bursaries up to £1,200 are also available for vulnerable learners with high needs aged 19-25 accessing Flourish FE provision subject to eligibility criteria.

Please contact Vicky Bolster, High Needs Section Leader: vicky.bolster@knowsley.gov.uk

Ages 19+

Discretionary Learner Support Funds (DLSF)

DLSF are administered by the service to support learners who are experiencing financial hardship with course related costs. This funding is only available to learners aged 19+ and who are enrolled on an accredited course and subject to eligibility criteria. DLSF is a discretionary fund and due to the limited nature of the fund, meeting the criteria does not guarantee funding.

For further information and advice concerning these additional funds please contact Tracey Evans-Rittenberg, Business, Quality and Performance Manager on 0151 443 5384 or by email: tracey.evans-rittenberg@knowsley.gov.uk.
