Humber Learning Consortium are pleased to announce the launch of the 5th round of our ESF Community Grants 5 project.

ESF Community Grants are part of the European Social Fund (ESF) program which is distributing small grants in the Humber, East Riding, York and North Yorkshire region. The aim of the fund is to help unemployed people progress towards employment through access to learning and training opportunities. Applications would be welcomed from North Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire. 

Grants of between £5,000 and up to £20,000 are available. For further details go to www.hlc-vol.org – contact details community-grants@hlc-vol.org.

Deadline for application receipt is Friday 26th March 2021 14:00.

All applications must be completed electronically. We will not accept any applications by post or email. To access the electronic application form please go to our website https://www.hlc-vol.org/2021/02/esf-community-grants-5-round-5/.

When completing the Electronic application form – the form cannot be saved throughout completion. Therefore you must answer every question fully in one session before submission. It is strongly advised that you download the word template paper version from our website to enable you to cut and paste the written narrative answers onto the electronic form.

*There are several changes to this program so it is recommended that even if you have delivered ESF Community Grants before that you attend one of the Application Development workshops available. This new program includes progression outputs that are required to be evidenced within 28 days of them occurring so please take advantage of the workshops to gather as much application information as you can. To book onto one of the below workshops please complete the form through our website.

Please note that due to the current situation all Application Development workshops will be delivered via Zoom and therefore places are limited to 1 per organisation, with a maximum of 10 places. You will receive a link to the workshop once you have successfully booked a place.

Places are limited – so please book early: 

  • Tuesday 9th March 13:00 – 15.00 (via Zoom)
  • Wednesday 10th March 13:00 – 15:00 (via Zoom)
