South West Foundation Community Grants Programme
South West Foundation which supports small Voluntary and Community Sector Organisations has announced that its Community Grants programme has re-opened for applications. This Programme is jointly funded through European Social Fund and Skills Funding Agency. The Community Grant Programme is for grants up to £13,000 to enable Voluntary and Community Sector Organisations to offer projects to support people furthest removed from the labour market to move toward employment. The projects funded are very diverse and include training programmes, advice and information provision, confidence and skills building. There is no requirement for beneficiaries to be in employment at the end of the programme but previous programmes have each benefitted over 2,000 people with over 1,000 people moving onto employment, training and volunteering per programmes.
The closing date for applications is the 13th June 2014. Read more at: http://www.the-foundation.org.uk/grant-programmes/
