Suzanne AllenBlog & News
The latest European Social Fund (ESF) Case Study booklet has been published to showcase just some of the projects funded by ESF, highlighting the impact and positive difference made to people, communities, and businesses. ESF funding has supported around £1.6million people, with many progressing in life through improving their employability, gaining new skills, move towards and into work.

The European Social Fund (ESF) programme in England contributes to local growth by increasing labour market participation, promoting social inclusion and developing the skills of the potential and existing workforce. The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) is the Managing Authority for the programme.

Since March 2015 the current ESF programme has been supporting projects across the country. At 1 December 2021, £2.9 billion of EU funding had been allocated, this represents over 96% of our total allocation.

To 1 October 2021 the 14-20 programme has helped around 1.6 million people. Of these over 197,000 who upon starting ESF declared they were either inactive or job searching, had gained employment at the time they left ESF support; and over 148,000 people were in education or training upon leaving. ESF projects can run up to late 2023.
