The British Youth Council have some funding to cover the costs of young people attending the APPG on Youth Affairs – especially for those who would not otherwise be able to attend. You will be entitled to claim an allowance up to the following amounts per young person aged 14-30, (and an accompanying adult for those aged under 16) depending on the distance travelled. These figures are a maximum, we will pay whichever is lower from the bursary amount or the full travel cost, on production of a valid receipt.

Distance travelled Allowance
10 – 99 km Up to £15 per person
100 – 499 km Up to £60 per person
500 – 1999 km Up to £120 per person

This will be available on a first come first served basis – you can apply by sending an email to francesca.danmole@byc.org.uk. Please note that reimbursements will be issued upon us receiving original receipts and a completed attendance/claim form at the event.

Once you have had confirmation of a bursary could you please also register with Phillippa Lewis of the group’s secretariat to reserve a space at the event on 020 7186 9551 or via email at appgonyouthaffairs@ymca.org.uk.
