If you are in receipt of any kind of benefits, you could qualify. Please get in touch as soon as possible as an application may take a few days to process.

About the Lead Writer

Jim Hall

Jim Hall is a writer, educator & author of Upon Arrival, Drop Your Cool, Boy and Before You Take Off Your Party Hat (Forthcoming 2019). He is an advocate of finding your voice and everything you feel. Lover of Netflix, poetic rap battles and Max Paprika crisps. He says less than he should. Writing helps with this. Jim is known to cry at sweeping beat-laden pop songs and his mother’s kitchen waltz. He has served as writer-in-residence in Nottingham Girls Academy and Nottingham Academy, Greenwood Road.
