South West Forum: European Funding - get the latest
from 10:00 am to 12:30 pm
A new round of EU funding is getting underway and voluntary and community groups will soon have the opportunity to bid for contracts or apply for funds. But the system has changed since previous programmes.
The Heart of the South West Local Enterprise Partnership now has the lead role in agreeing the priorities for EU funding and the Big Lottery Fund is providing matched funding for social inclusion related activity as an “opt-in” provider. It’s complicated and there is still a lot that is not nailed down. But this event is designed to bring you up to date, find out the likely priorities for funding, learn about the application process Big Lottery Fund expects to use and get a handle on the likely timing of key decisions and funding “calls”.
It is for voluntary and community organisations only but is open to any organisation operating in Plymouth, Devon, Torbay or Somerset.
