European Social Fund Community Grants - South Yorkshire
There are no match funding requirements.
ESF Community Grants are part of the European Social Fund (ESF) programme which is distributing small grants in the Yorkshire and Humber region. The aim of the fund is to help unemployed people progress towards employment through access to learning and training opportunities.
Funded activities must be aimed at unemployed individuals aged 19 years and over from the hardest to reach communities. The identified priority groups for our region are as follows;
- Disadvantaged geographical areas
- People with disabilities and health conditions
- Lone parents
- People aged 50 and over
- People from ethnic minorities
However applications will be considered from any community that can evidence deprivation, for example homeless people and ex-offenders.
There are strict eligibility guidelines to be able to apply for a grant.
