This half day conference introduced LEPs to key experts and providers of European funding to support the delivery of effective European Structural and Investment Strategies.

It was an opportunity for Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) to learn how civil society organisations can provide expertise in the following key priority areas

  • Social Inclusion and match funding
  • Social Innovation
  • CLLD
  • Volunteer time
  • Social investment

As the coordinator of the European Funding Network, NCVO has been working across the country to engage our local civil society members in the LEP dialogues that are now taking place.
