Jennifer secures the NHC Unlocking Success Bursary

The Unlocking Success Bursary Scheme, funded through the Northern Housing Consortium Charitable Trust, awards bursaries of £500 to help tenants develop learning and skills to support future employment.

This year South Lakes Housing’s customer Jennifer has been one of the successful applicants in receiving the bursary.

Jennifer explained, “I wish to do a course in British sign language as at present there is no one with this qualification in my workplace. I pride myself in making sure that education is accessible to everyone and commination is vital for this to happen, not only with the children but also any parents of carers as well. In addition I would like to take minibus lessons in order to be able to drive a minibus. My work place is very small and our trips can cost quite a lot per child as the transport is the biggest cost factor. If I had my minibus licence, then we would be able to cut down the cost of education trips and offer more trips at a lower cost.”

Lyn our Customer Engagement Partner said “ I’m delighted that Jennifer has been awarded the bursary. It is an essential fund to help provide a stepping stone for tenants/customers to progress their learning or career’.

Jennifer said: “I would like to take this opportunity to thank the NHC for giving me the opportunity to expand my knowledge and grow in my career.’
