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 or 07468 764753.

The closing date is October 25.
