LIFT Community Grants

Open now!

The Norfolk County Council’s LIFT team in conjunction with Norfolk Community Learning Service has won a contract to distribute over £800K of European Social Fund Community Grants across the New Anglia area (Norfolk and Suffolk).  

Eligible community-based projects will support people to engage with an accessible but structured learning programme aimed at boosting their confidence and skills. The aim should be to help people into or closer to employment or more formal learning and skills provision. Funding will be available to applicants who can demonstrate they are able to work with those who face barriers to work such as longterm unemployment, mental or physical ill health or disability, discrimination or other disadvantage.  

Funding is available for local VCSE organisations and we can offer up to £20,000 per project for up to 100% of the total project costs.
