European Social Fund Community Grants - North East
County Durham Community Foundation (CDCF) is delivering ESF community grants in the North East region.
This fund is to provide help with basic skills, work experience, training advice and guidance, job search assistance, confidence building, personal development and support to overcome barriers to training and employment.
Within this £15,000 limit, groups may also apply for support costs to help with Capacity Building their organisation. Capacity Building Grants are not expected to exceed £1,500 except in exceptional cases.
The target groups are those individuals who are eligible beneficiaries of ESF Priority 1 funding in the region. This includes unemployed people and economically inactive people aged 19 years and over who are from the hardest to reach communities and who have difficulty accessing mainstream provision and/or ESF. Within this target group, participation of the following groups should be prioritised:
• People with disabilities and health conditions
• Lone parents
• People aged 50 or over
• People from ethnic minorities
There are no match funding requirements.
