Meet the Funder - ESF Community Grants 2019

Description

Come and join us for an hour to hear from the WEA who will be administering the ESF Community Grant Programme for the Liverpool City Region.

A £2.7 million programme to tackle unemployment has been launched in April 2019 with backing from the European Social Fund.

The funds have been granted by the government’s Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) in partnership with Liverpool City Region Local Enterprise Partnership to the Worker’s Educational Association (WEA), an adult education charity which provides training and learning opportunities for people at risk of exclusion.

Over the next two years, the charity will help thousands of people who face additional barriers in the workplace, such as lone parents, improve their employability and gain permanent employment.

The WEA will distribute small grants of £20,000 across Merseyside and Halton to eligible organisations in the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector between April 2019 and May 2021.

Funded activities will target those aged 19 and over, from the hardest to reach communities. The funding can help all who are out of work but especially those with:

  • disabilities and long term health conditions
  • single parents
  • women
  • people from ethnic minorities
  • people over 50
  • those planning to return to the workplace after a long period of absence

Round 2 of ESF Community Grants for Liverpool City Region will open again on the 7th August 2019..  The closing date for electronic applications is 12 noon on 10th September 2019.

For any other queries please call the ESF Grants Team on 0151 243 5356 or email ESFgrantslcr@wea.org.uk.
