Projects that aim to reduce unemployment and help people increase their income through employment are being invited to a special information session.

The session will help them find out how they can apply for funding to support their work ahead of a fund opening up for applications.

The Employability Grants Programme provides funding for organisations to provide engaging and innovative projects that will help local residents find and stay in employment. The programme, which is administered through the East Lothian Local Employability Partnership, will open for applications for financial year 2023-24 on 29 November. Completed application forms should be submitted by 4pm on Friday 6 January 2023.

Ahead of this East Lothian Works, the council’s employability service, has organised an online information session so projects can find out more about Employability Grants and how to compile a successful application. The session will take place at 10am on Monday 28 November 2022 via Microsoft Teams.To register for the information session or for further detail please email East Lothian Works.
