Community Grants EU-supported

23rd July 2019, 3:46pm | By David |

Groundwork launches in Swindon and Wiltshire with Community Training Grants worth £5,000 to £20,000 as part of the Swindon and Wiltshire Local Enterprise Partnership’s European Funding and Investment Programme.

The Swindon and Wiltshire Community Training Grants support those furthest from the labour market, targeting the economically inactive. Discrete, focused and well targeted proposals are welcomed.

Successful applicants will help individuals move either into employment, or establish a route towards employment, by helping individuals through education and training opportunities, advice, guidance and information.

The call for applications for grants is open, with full details, guidance and prospectus available from Groundwork.

Applications for grants can come from social enterprises, community and voluntary groups, charities and small businesses. They should seek to complement the Building Bridges programme and aim to provide support to people whilst meeting the local priorities for help with:

– Enterprise support services to tackle financial exclusion

– Establishing routes towards and into work with employers

– Promoting inclusion through learning and volunteering

The grants scheme will be operated by Groundwork London,  a social and environmental charity.

If you are considering making an application and would like to discuss this informally, please contact mailto:europeanfunding@swlep.co.uk
