YMCA Exeter operates a charitable donation Rent Bursary scheme that helps young people who are currently living in our St. David’s Hill and Newcourt accommodation to be able to enter into full time employment.

This is because as your income from your employment increases, the amount you receive from Housing Benefit decreases.

Please speak with your support worker to find out more about this, and if this applies to you.

How to apply

Applying for the Rent Bursary is simple; try our Rent Calculator to see if the bursary would apply to you. Then print out the result and speak to your Support Worker for more information.
