Big Lottery Fund is matching funds from the European Social Fund for projects across England that tackle poverty and promote social inclusion
Big Lottery Fund is matching funds from the European Social Fund (ESF) 2014-2020 to invest in local projects tackling the root causes of poverty, promoting social inclusion and driving local jobs and growth.
The funding will be delivered in 38 Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) areas (see map below) according to local priorities, which have been set by the LEPs themselves. It will support a variety of projects, ranging from those improving employability for the most disadvantaged, helping those with multiple and complex needs, to improving financial literacy.
The amount of funding varies across different areas as LEPs and the LEP area European Structural Investment Fund (ESIF) Sub Committees have decided how much of their ESF allocation to devote to this strand of work.
The third round of funding has now opened. There are eight new opportunities in 6 LEP areas, totalling £13,995,400 of investment.
The LEP areas taking part in this round are:
The second round closed in November 2015 and we will be making stage one decisions in Spring 2016.
