Grants of between £5,000 and £20,000 are available for small and voluntary organisations to deliver projects for unemployed people, helping them to remove barriers to employment, and progress into education, training or jobs. Groundwork will be managing the grant fund on behalf of the ESFA.
The fund aims to support in particular (although not exclusively) participants:
- who are over 50
- with disabilities
- from ethnic minorities
- who are women
You can sign up to the ESF Community Grants newsletter here to be the first to know when the fund opens, and receive updates on the projects funded.
