The application process for the Community Learning Fund 2021 / 2022 is now open.

To embrace the council's vision of eradicating poverty, the fund is designed to specifically support and encourage VCS and other third sector and not for profit organisations, in delivering innovative learning that supports disadvantaged adults by helping them to progress, enabling them to move to further learning opportunities, volunteering or employment.

The Fund is in place to:

  • Maximise access to community learning for adults, bringing new opportunities and improving lives, whatever people’s circumstances.

  • Promote social renewal by bringing local communities together to experience the joy of learning and the pride that comes with achievement.

  • Maximise the impact of community learning on the social and economic well-being of individuals, families and communities.

The deadline for submissions is 3.30pm on Friday 6th August 2021.
