Call to run a project to support those furthest from the labour market in Cornwall and Isles of Scilly

Funding of up to £2m is available for projects which develop collaborative and innovative solutions that will address the underlying challenges of identification, engagement and support for individuals furthest from the labour market including a COVID-19 Response and Recovery element.

Applications should deliver specific interventions that will engage economically inactive and unemployed people facing particular difficulties to build trust and confidence, acquire soft and basic skills and/or to enable them to progress into employment or wider employability programmes (mainstream or ESF). Interventions could include the provision of grants.

The funding comes from the European Social Fund (ESF) and forms part of the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Growth Programme which aims to deliver economic regeneration for the region from 2014-2020.
