Call 3 of the Sunderland Community Led Local Development programme is now open and will close on Tuesday 31 March 2020.

This call from the Sunderland Community Led Local Development programme invites Expressions of Interest which support the delivery of Strategic Objective 1: Enhancing employment and skills provision. 

ESF investment in the CLLD target area is intended to make a significant impact on local employment and skills provision. There is no minimum application level for funding. However, other more appropriate funding opportunities may be available to support smaller projects seeking less than £15,000 of European funding support. Typically, projects should plan to deliver activity for a minimum of 1 year (e.g. for pilot projects), or up to September 2022 at the latest. All potential applicant organisations are encouraged to work together with other local partners to generate new ideas, approaches and develop joint proposals. 


The following web link provides further information on the application process, and key documents and guidance to assist you in developing your project If you have any questions on the application process please email:
