Liverpool City Region: ESF Community Grants 2019 – 2021 briefing event
The funds have been granted by the government’s Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) in partnership with Liverpool City Region Local Enterprise Partnership to the Worker’s Educational Association (WEA), an adult education charity which provides training and learning opportunities for people at risk of exclusion.
Over the next two years, the charity will help thousands of people who face additional barriers in the workplace, such as lone parents, improve their employability and gain permanent employment.
The WEA will distribute small grants of £20,000 across Merseyside and Halton to eligible organisations in the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector between April 2019 and May 2021.
Funded activities will target those aged 19 and over, from the hardest to reach communities. The funding can help all who are out of work but especially those with:
- disabilities and long term health conditions
- single parents
- people from ethnic minorities
- people over 50
- those planning to return to the workplace after a long period of absence
Places are limited to 20 and will be allocated on a first come first served basis. To ensure that as many organisations as possible can benefit, places are limited to one delegate per organisation (unless there is an accessibility issue).
