Our partners at the WEA (Workers’ Educational Association) are the UK’s largest voluntary sector provider of adult education in England and Scotland. Their support has been vital to breathing new life into communities and helping individuals to build more positive futures and access full-time employment.

European Funding has played a huge part in enabling the positive outcomes which adult learning and education can bring. Below is a great example of how money from the European Social Fund is helping the Third Sector to deliver such transformative services.
