Kent Community Foundation: Employability, Skills & Enterprise

Education & Employment Local Grants Saturday August 31st, 2019

Kent Community Foundation’s Employability, Skills and Enterprise grant programme awards grants of up to £5,000 to those aiming to raise the aspirations and increase the skills and opportunities of people who are far from the labour market. This could be due to a range of challenging circumstances that can present barriers to employment. This may include young people/NEETs, young parents, ex-offenders, ex-forces, those with financial barriers to gaining training, and those with learning disabilities, mental health issues or physical disabilities.

The Foundation looks for projects that provide accredited training, apprenticeships, meaningful work experience and life skills/employment skills workshops for the disadvantaged. The theme supports strategic projects which aim to prevent young people from becoming NEETs.
