EU Funding to Tackle Unemployment in the Liverpool City Region (Liverpool & Halton) (Closing date: 3rd October 2016)
A £1million European Social Fund (ESF) programme has been launched to tackle unemployment within the Liverpool City Region Local Enterprise Partnership area.
The programme is being managed by the Workers’ Educational Association (WEA) which over the next two years will help hundreds of people who face additional barriers in the workplace improve their employability and gain permanent employment. The WEA will distribute small grants of between £10,000 – £35,000 across Merseyside and Halton to eligible organisations in the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector. Funded activities will target those aged 15 and over, from the hardest to reach communities. The funding can help all who are out of work, but especially people with disabilities and long-term health conditions; single parents; women, people from ethnic minorities, people over 50 and those planning to return to the workplace after a long period of absence.
The closing date for this funding round is the 3rd October 2016.
