Voluntary Sector Survey on engagement in the European Structural and Investment Funds Programme 2014-2020

To understand the sector’s relationship with the LEPs, NCVO is inviting voluntary organisations to take part in our survey to share your experiences of working with your Local Enterprise Partnership.

The Voluntary and Community Sector (VCS) has a key role in the new European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF) 2014-2020 Programme.

Thanks to requirements set out in the Regulations and the Code of Conduct on Partnership, all partners (including community-based and voluntary organisations, environmental and equality partners) need to be fully involved in the new Programme.

This presents a huge challenge for the VCS, NCVO is therefore inviting views on how the sector is dealing with the new geography of 39 Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) areas, on the capacity of local organisations working together and the levels of engagement between the sector and the LEPs.

NCVO has been directly involved in the design of the new ESIF Programme working in partnership with BIS, the Mas, the OCS, Big Lottery Fund, the European Funding Network Advisory Group and a wide range of stakeholders from Civil Society.
