Our first European Social Fund project co-funded through the Big Lottery Funding (BLF) has been approved to support social inclusion in our region. Royal British Legion Industries won a grant of £326,550 to deliver a project called ‘Inspiring the Working People of Tomorrow’ to work with 350 individuals who have been unemployed for some time and create opportunities for returning to work in our region. This is one of first BFL projects being approved nationally under ESF.
A new call co-funded under BLF is seeking projects under the specifications ‘Work Experience and Volunteering - Social enterprise’. More information and how to apply is available on the BFL website www.biglotteryfund.org.uk.
