The grant programme aims to support people with an emphasis on building confidence, knowledge and skills, and therefore increasing prospects of employment.
They offer grants up to £5,000 towards specific projects or core activities that support literacy, numeracy, digital and additional skills for learning that are likely to assist employment prospects.
The Trust recognises that the future of the labour market will become increasingly competitive, with employers placing greater emphasis on transferable skills.
They are currently OPEN to new applications. The deadline for submitting an Expression of Interest form is Friday 30th April 2021.
