The short series of half-day meetings to brief voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations on the new European funding programme will be held in Manchester, Bolton, Salford and Oldham.
Greater Manchester has an allocation of £356 million of European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF) for the 2014-20 programme. Executive support for the Local Enterprise Partnership is provided by New Economy with which GMCVO – advocating for the interests of the local voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) sector – has a close working relationship.
GMCVO, are also working with the European Funding Network’s Network for Europe, and New Economy to provide a range of information and advice to help VCSE organisations, and the organisations that support them, to make sure everyone is aware of the plan, can identify whether and how you could and would want to participate, understand the routes into delivery, and are prepared for the practical requirements of working with European funding.
GMCVO also have a seat on the ‘Local Management Committee’ which has been set up by the LEP to develop, design and manage the delivery of the ESIF plan.
