Future of EU Funds in the North West - March 2011

We held our last briefing event on 17 March 2011 on the future of European funds in the North West. The aim of the briefing event was to raise awareness among Third Sectori groups of European funding streams available in the second part of the programme, the new delivery and emerging management arrangements. Representatives from 32 organisations attended and the feedback we have have received suggests that it was a success.

The event was split into five presentations, the first one provided information about developments in the European Social Fund, the second focused on the Work Programme and opportunities for the voluntary and community sector to praticipate. The third presentation looked at the North West Third Sector SPV Ltd it's vision, aims and objectives and how organisations can get involved. The next presentation provided information about the Fifth Cohesion Forum and provided an update on the debate for cohesion policy in the 2013-2020 programming period. The final presentation provided participants with an opportunity to get involved in influencing ESFi in the new programming period.
