Trade Grant

Trade Grant

We recognise that Tameside has a vitally important Trade skill base. So it is key that we support our local trades. If you are an apprentice based within the Trade industry or a young person setting up a Trade business within Tameside, you may be eligible for a grant up to £1,000. The grant money can be used to buy uniform, tools or even as part of a deposit for a van, for example. Please note the Tameside Trade Grant will not cover PPE or laptops.

You may be eligible if you are one of the following:

  • An apprentice beginning a career in a trade
  • A young person starting your own trade business
