The Richard Mintz Bursary Fund has been set up to honour the memory of our dear late trustee and friend Richard Mintz OBE who passed away in March 2020.
Richard Z”L was passionate about Work Avenue because he saw it as a vehicle to help those who needed support to stand on their own two feet and a helping hand to get them on the earning ladder.
The Richard Mintz Bursary Fund will provide bursaries to those wishing to train for a new career. It has been designed to help those wishing to improve their earning potential but who are prevented from doing so due to the expense of training courses.
Vocational courses funded by the Richard Mintz Bursary Fund will help to provide the essential skills needed in today’s competitive workplace, boost the chances of finding employment or nurturing a successful business, and expand the potential choice of work. Such training provides the building blocks to earn a living with dignity and pride, a concept that encompasses his raison d’etre of giving people the tools they need to help themselves.
Applicants will work with Work Avenue advisers to ensure that their chosen pathway will suit their skills, needs and preferences.
