COMMUNITY GRANTS PROGRAMME FIRST ROUND OPENS 17th MARCH 2014
In partnership with the Learning Curve the Foundation is managing a Community Grants Programme of £805,000.This Programme is jointly funded through European Social Fund and Skills Funding Agency. The Community Grant Programme is for grants up to £13,000 to enable Voluntary and Community Sector Organisations to offer projects to support people furthest removed from the labour market to move toward employment. This programme is now closed to new applications as all funds have been allocated.The projects funded are very diverse and include training programmes, advice and information provision, confidence and skills building.There is no requirement for beneficiaries to be in employment at the end of the programme but previous programmes have each benefitted over 2,000 people with over 1,000 people moving onto employment, training and volunteering per programmes.
This is the sixth ESF funded programme that the Foundation has managed.
