Renfrewshire Employability Grants Programme

Round 1 is open for applications, The RLEP look forward to receiving applications by the closing date – Wednesday 20 October (midnight).

This new, grants programme has been developed by Renfrewshire’s Local Employability Partnership (RLEP) in response to the Scottish Government’s No One Left Behind (NOLB) policy which brings a significant shift in decision making in relation to how employability funding is utilised to a local level.

This new grant programme, a new local method of jointly commissioning services aims to be an open and transparent approach which offers all local employability providers the opportunity to get involved.

It will support innovation, pilots, new ideas and approaches which will contribute to:

  • Reducing unemployment in Renfrewshire
  • Increasing income through employment for low income families.

The grants programme will allow providers to come forward with their own ideas and suggestions for new services and provisions based on evidence of need.

Renfrewshire LEP encourages employability service providers to use their expertise, local knowledge and links with other partners to develop creative and innovative proposals that they have confidence there is demand for and that meet local gaps in service delivery and complement existing provision.

The RLEP look forward to receiving applications by the closing date – Wednesday 20 October (midnight).
