The John Cracknell Youth Enterprise Bank is for young people aged up to and including 21 years old that live in Hull and the East Riding. It offers grants of up to £1,000 for individuals or groups of young people who need finance to help make their idea happen. (More funding will be considered in exceptional circumstances). The idea should benefit other people or help the applicant develop an enterprising idea.
The Youth Enterprise Bank (YEB) is not just about giving financial support we also offer practical help with developing your business idea. The YEB works closely with the team with Hull Training’s Youth Enterprise Team at Kingston House. The Youth Enterprise Bank is managed by a group of trustees, chaired by Maureen Foers OBE and linked to the Hull Youth Enterprise Partnership.
To-date over 155 young people from Hull have benefited from this source of funding, buying items such as: Computers, Business Stationery, Websites, Photography Equipment, Bicycle Repair Equipment, Chocolate Making Equipment, Dance costumes for local bands, equipment for mobile hairdressers and much more.
In order to be considered by the Management Group (which meets bi-monthly) applications will need to be with the secretary by the 1st day of each month.
