Connecting Hastings and Rother Together (CHART) is a Community-led Local Development Programme with access to some £2.8m of European Structural Investment Funds (ESIF) to support projects that bring a fresh approach to tackling deep-rooted problems in deprived communities within Hastings and Bexhill. It is particularly focused on: helping disadvantaged people to find and keep work locally; helping disadvantaged people to start a business or set up as self-employed; stimulating the local economy to create jobs suitable for local people. This call for projects has been issued by Hastings Borough Council and will prioritise projects with a total project value of £1m. Click here for more information. A workshop will take place on Wednesday 11 July 11.00 – 2.30 at De La Warr Pavilion, Marina, Bexhill – more information and booking is here.
