Learn about our support for outdoor bursaries
Each year, through the network of our Liverymen and through the Association of Sail Training Organisations, nominations are sought for young people who are financially or socially disadvantaged to enable them to participate in voyages and sail training courses. The Shipwrights’ Company awards bursaries to enable youngsters to join both the Tall Ships Youth Trust and Jubilee Sailing Trust
In 2011/12 more than 200 young people participated in voyages and courses at a cost of £25,000. This scheme has produced measurable results in terms of personal development and the Shipwrights Company aims to increase the number of youngsters benefiting from this scheme when further funds become available.
