The Coast to Capital LEP has released information regarding 3 DWP Direct Calls for European Social Fund (ESF) that will be launched in the New Year in the Coast to Capital area. They are keen to emphasise that this is not a call launch. At present there are no exact dates of when the calls will be published by DWP. However, the Coast to Capital LEP has agreed with DWP to publicise this information on the specifications that will be released to enable potential applicants to start their thinking on possible project ideas, match funding and partnership collaborations, prior to the launch date with a view to applicants being fully prepared once the call window is launched. There will also be a C2C workshop at the end of January 2018 around match funding and partnership collaboration to give potential applicants the opportunity to hear information about match funding and discuss opportunities and ideas for projects. Further information will be available soon.
