Helpful FAQs

Who can apply?

Applications are welcomed from third party professionals on behalf of children and young people who live or study in North Kirklees. Applicants must be aged seventeen or under on the 1st of September in the year of application. 

How do I apply?

All applications need to be made on the Let June application form which can be viewed or downloaded from this website. Please note that Let June can only receive applications from professionals or accredited personnel working in the interests of the child and we are unable to accept applications directly from either parents or guardians.

What information do I need in order to apply?

The application form will guide you through the information that the Trustees require to consider making an award. In addition to the young person meeting the age and location criteria, the Trustees will consider the financial needs of the family and the nature of the request being made. In relation to the former, if the young person is in receipt of Pupil Premium, this will be sufficient to confirm financial need. If this does not apply, more detailed information concerning income and expenditure of the family will be required. This is set out in the Application Form. Particular attention will be paid by the Trustees to the section headed “What Difference Can We Make” since this is central to the Charity’s focus.

How long does the application process take?

All Trustees consider all applications to the Charity. It is the Trustees’ target to respond with a decision within two weeks of receiving all the information that has been requested.

How is the Charity Funded?

The original funding for the Charity was received from the Dewhirst family. A further tranche of funding was subsequently made available to be drawn down from One Community. The Charity does not currently fund raise but it can receive donations from supportive partners.

Which items/activities will the charity not fund?

The Charity will consider any application where the Trustees feel that there is an opportunity to make a significant difference to a young person’s life. Specifically excluded are applications in respect of school uniforms, white goods, home furniture, living expenses, taxis (travel costs) and debt repayments.
