Bids for grant funding invited

Voluntary and community groups providing education and learning opportunities to adults on the Isle of Wight can bid for grant funding worth up to £40,000.

The Isle of Wight Council’s Adult Community Learning Service has published a new Grant Funding Prospectus for 2019/20.

Bids are invited from voluntary and community groups, as well as any enterprise that will use funding to deliver services that widen access to adult learning opportunities.

The service provides opportunities that engage adults in learning, with a focus on those who have benefited least from the formal education system.

The outcomes the council will be seeking in return for grant funding include:

Outcome 1: Help people who are disadvantaged and least likely to participate in learning.

Outcome 2: Improve acquisition of skills which prepare people for further education, training or employment.This may include achievement of qualifications.

Outcome 3: Develop stronger, independent and more self-sufficient people who are able to volunteer in their local community.

Outcome 4: A range of universal and targeted family learning courses and workshops supporting an early intervention and prevention model by developing resilience within families.

The grant funding prospectus provides more information about the council's expectations.

If your organisation can deliver services or projects that meet some of these outcomes, download a copy of the detailed prospectus from www.iow.gov.uk/prospectus

He can be contacted at the council’s Westridge offices by calling (01983) 817280 or emailing robert.brindley@iow.gov.uk

The deadline for receipt of completed applications is 3pm, on Monday 10 June 2019.
