Community Grants

Community Grants 2014-2015

In partnership with the South West Foundation, the Learning Curve managed the last jointly funded European Social Fund and Skills Funding Agency, Community Grant Programme 2014-2015 for the South West Region (excluding Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly).

This Community Grant Programme provided grants of up to £13000 to enable small (yearly turnover less than £300k) Voluntary and Community Sector Organisations to offer projects supporting people furthest removed from the labour market in moving towards employment.
