Almost 80 people packed into the room at The Quaker Meeting House in Liverpool on the 10th June to listen to presentations about the new EUi funding programmes from a high quality line up of speakers. The attendees not only heard the latest information about the programmes from the speakers but also asked questions and debated some of the issues relating to the VCSi and our role in delivering high quality projects.

Network for Europe is a support organisation that aims to facilitate engagement of Voluntary and Community sector organisations in European funded programmes. Since the closure of North West Network, we have been working towards expanding our area of coverage from Merseyside to cover the whole of the North West. This site builds on North West Network’s website and features latest news, information about the European Union, details on Structural Fundsi and an archive of relevant documentation for current and previous EUi programmes.
Below is a video we have commissioned which features projects around the region which have received a Community Grant. Community Grants are funded by the European Social Fund (ESFi).
