The three-year project is funded by the Big Lottery Fund and the European Social Fund.
This project is one of the largest funding streams secured for a voluntary and community sector partnership in the area. It represents an exciting opportunity for local charities and voluntary organisations within the partnership to demonstrate their effectiveness in supporting those most distant from work, training and volunteering – offering flexible support to help adults overcome physical, psychological, financial and skills-related barriers and progress towards employment, training, education and job-search, whilst at the same time helping to combat a range of social issues including poverty and social exclusion.
