Solent Community Grants Programme
To reach and work with individuals with complex barriers to employment, enabling them to move closer or into employment.
The programme is part-funded by the European Social Fund.
The programme has been created by the Solent Local Enterprise Partnership and is supported by the European Social Fund (ESF), Hampshire County Council, Portsmouth City Council, Southampton City Council and Hampshire & Isle of Wight Community Foundation (HIWCF) fund holders.
The programme is a result of the call issued by the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) to commission ESF funded projects that provide grants to support organisations who are able to reach and work with individuals with complex barriers to employment, enabling them to move closer or into employment.
Communities First Wessex has received a grant of £23,581 from the Solent Community Grant Programme for the Positive Pathways Project supporting people through volunteering.
The project has enabled individuals to build confidence, meet others and become active.
