Funding for Organisations Helping Unemployed People Progress to Work

AS part of our European Social Fund provision, Humber Learning Consortium have launched the third round of the Community Grants Programme 2016-18.

The grants, which are between £5,000 and £15,000, are for not for profit organisations working in the hardest to reach communities helping unemployed people progress to work.

Specifically, the grants will fund local projects to help unemployed people aged 18 years and over, progress towards employment through access to learning and training opportunities.

The fund is commissioned through the Skills Funding Agency and is a key investment that supports the delivery of the ESIF strategy.
