The Swindon and Wiltshire Community Training Grants support those furthest from the labour market, targeting the economically inactive. Successful applicants will move individuals either into employment, or establish a route towards employment, by helping individuals through education and training opportunities, advice, guidance and information.
The call for applications for grants is open, with full details, guidance and prospectus available from Groundwork.
Applications for grants can come from social enterprises, community and voluntary groups, charities and small businesses. They should seek to complement the Building Bridges programme and aim to provide support to people whilst meeting the local priorities for help with:
– Enterprise support services to tackle financial exclusion
– Establishing routes towards and into work with employers
– Promoting inclusion through learning and volunteering
