Fund title: Community Grants
Focus of fund/fund aims:
For local initiatives that work with disadvantaged or excluded unemployed and inactive people and support them to re-engage with education, training or employment.
Applications will be accepted up until September 2020
Community Grants, funded by the European Social Fund, is a programme that aims to support small and voluntary organisations with grants of £1,000 – £20,000 for local initiatives that will move unemployed and inactive people over the age of 16 towards employment, training or education.
The grants will support a range of activities aimed at moving individuals towards the labour market by improving their access to local employment and skills provision. They will provide support to underrepresented communities and individuals, especially those from deprived communities, to access employment, including self-employment, or further learning and training.
Applications can be made by small businesses and not-for-profit organisations including charities, voluntary and community groups.
Community Grants are being managed by Petroc in Devon and Somerset.
