Not-for-profit SMEs have just three weeks left to apply for grants of up to £7,500 with the aim of creating employability training courses for residents of Great Yarmouth.

The new Inclusion Project will assist economically inactive residents in gaining entry-level training, volunteering and work placement opportunities.

The funding has come from the borough council and the European Social Fund, and over three years will see £120,000 given away in chunks of £1,000 to £7,500.

Applicants for the funding can be based anywhere in the UK, but must deliver their proposed new services within the borough and be prepared to match-fund their requested grants, either from other funding sources or in kind.

Eligible enterprises interested in finding out more or applying should contact coordinator Tracey Read via tracey.read@great-yarmouth.gov.uk or 07468 764753.

The closing date is October 25.
