Our Youth Circus Bursaries enable children and families who need extra support to experience the joy of circus for free.

We are committed to ensuring all of our activities are as accessible as possible, and as such we are thrilled to be able to offer bursaries to a limited number of children who would like to attend Youth Circus classes.

Bursaries are available to assist children who would find it difficult to attend the classes without support, and subsidise the equivalent cost of one class a week.

2018/19 Bursaries 

Our Youth Circus Bursary Scheme for 2019/19 is supporting 21 children and young people to access weekly youth circus classes completely free.

This round of Bursaries will initially run until 25 February 2019 and will then be reassessed dependent on funding. Bursaries are awarded at the discretion of the NoFit State Community Programme Manager, and are available to assist children who could not attend otherwise.
