Funded by the European Social Fund and the Skills Funding Agency, the Community Grants Programme in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly aimed to support small Voluntary and Community Sector Organisations (Third Sector Organisations) to deliver activities and training that will help move people who are the furthest from the labour market toward employment.
Grants of between £1,000 and £14,000 were awarded to support activities that create the following outcomes for the target beneficiaries: people moving into paid work, voluntary work, further learning or training and improvements in work related skills. A total of £343,750 was available.
Individuals who benefited from the activities provided through the programme were unemployed or economically inactive and not currently in receipt of support from other ESF, SFA or Department of Work and Pensions Programmes and aged over 19 but of employment age.
Funds were awarded on a first come first served basis, with decision making panels in July, September, October, November 2014 and January 2015. All projects must be complete and claimed by May 2015.
