The next deadline for the ESF community grants is on 9th December but if any organisations apply by 2nd December they will get support with the application if they need it.

About ESFA Community Training Grants

The focus of these grants will be to fund projects which support participants who are over 16 years of age, eligible to work in the UK and either unemployed or economically inactive.

Successful applicants are expected to be able to help move individuals into work, or closer to employment, by providing vocational training, advice, guidance and information.

Eligibility

Third sector and small organisations can apply for grants between £5,000 and £20,000. Applicants must be from either third sector organisations or small organisations (less than 49 employees), and have an annual turnover of less than €10 million Euros, please see currency convertor.

The deadline for your application to be considered in our fourth round of decision meetings is 9am, 9th December 2019. However, if you submit your application by the 2nd December, we will be able to provide you with feedback on your application with enough time to make amendments before the deadline.

Please note we are expecting competition to increase as the programme continues, so we recommend applying as soon as possible.

About the Funders
