This document provides general advice about the criteria for eligibility for the scheme which has been set by the Education Funding Agency.



The Residential Support Scheme is intended to help support students aged 16 to 18 with the costs of living away from home to study because the provision is not available locally.

This guide provides information to all those involved in the delivery of the scheme in 2013 to 2014.

It does not attempt to offer definitive advice for every situation; stakeholders who require further or more detailed help and advice should contact the Leaner Support Service who administer the scheme on behalf of the EFA.
