Grants of up to £20,000 are available for projects aimed at the unemployed or those facing barriers into work in Norfolk.

A total of around £500,000 is up for grabs to help fund community-based structured learning projects.

The cash is from the Local Investment in Future Talent programme.

The money can be used to cover up to 100% of project costs.

Cllr Graham Plant, Deputy Leader of Norfolk County Council and Cabinet Member for Growing the Economy, said:

"This funding is for projects that will support people to gain the confidence, skills and knowledge to move into employment or into formal accredited learning and skills provision.

"Many people face multiple challenges to securing employment and this scheme is designed to help people benefit from effective targeted support at a local level."

Funded by the European Social Fund, LIFT Community Grants are aimed at Voluntary Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) sector organisations for eligible projects. These will aim to fill gaps in local community provision within Norfolk and Suffolk, the New Anglia LEP area.

Twenty organisations from across both counties have been awarded a grant so far and there are funds available for at least a further 24 projects.
