Info: The ESF Community Grant Programme is already helping many people in the Liverpool City Region who face additional barriers in the workplace to improve their employability and gain employment.
Small grants of up to £20,000 are available across LCR to eligible organisations in the VCSE sector. Projects should look to develop and maintain participant connections to learning experiences. Project activity should support, maintain and improve participant employability and resilience. Activities should develop progression routes into employment, Further Education and training for participants .
All project activity must be within the current government COVID restrictions, but should include flexibility to adapt as and when those restrictions change in future months. The funding can help ALL who are out of work or economically inactive but especially those that:
– Have disabilities, learning difficulties or health conditions
– Are from ethnic minorities
– Are aged over 50
All eligible participants must be aged 19+ and live in the Merseyside or Halton area (this depends on which area the project is based).
