Over 150 local projects from the North West have celebrated their achievements in helping people become more work-ready and succeed in finding jobs, as part of the Community Learning Grants Programme of the European Social Fund.
Network for Europe staff attended the WEA (Workers' Educational Association) Community Grants celebration event which was held in Manchester in October 2013. WEA has been administering the Community Grants programme in the North West since 2011, Network for Europe has been a partner in the project steering group providing advice on technical issues.
The programme will come to an end in December 2013 spending nearly £2m ESFi money to help people from deprived communities get a step closer in their journey to work.

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).
