ESF Community Grants

The London LEAP and Coast to Capital LEP has invested ESF funds to deliver a Community Grants programme for the region from 1st April 2019.

Working with the voluntary and community sector, the programme will support people with multiple and complex barriers to participation to address these underlying issues and to move closer to or into the labour market.

LLC has been successful in bidding to operate as the commissioning body for both the London South and Coast to Capital contracts. As such we would like to invite Expressions of Interest from eligible organisations to apply for grant funding which meets the priorities and criteria for the contract.

The LLC Community Grants Strategies for both regions 2019 are available for download here:



For further details please click on the region you would like to apply for, on the left-hand side menu of this page.

Further information about successful awards of Grant Funding here.

Due to the current climate, we, unfortunately, have to reschedule the next Coast to Capital Grant Application Panel, originally booked for May 2020. We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and look forward to greeting new applications in August 2020.

The closing date for London South Expression of Interest (EOI) to be submitted is the 3rd July 2020 at 23.59pm.

The closing date for Coast to Capital Expression of Interest (EOI) to be submitted is the 31st July 2020 at 23.59pm.
