Curent and Prospective ESF Contractors

There are many obligations on organisations who run projects funded by ESFi. These should not be viewed as onerous conditions of obtaining funding, but as an aid to getting the maximum for the beneficiaryi and for the project, to raising the profilei and bringing awareness to the general public of the enormous benefits ESF can bring to the region.

In order to promote information about the obligations involved running an ESF co-financed project with LSCi Lancashire the LSC created the ESF Contractors Information Centre (ECIC). The site contains Forms, Guidance, Related Documents, Web Links and a What’s New Section, all intended to help both organisations considering entering into a contract and those that have already done so to comply with their obligations. The ESF Contractors Information Centre can be accessed at,
