International grants for the voluntary and community sector

Information and advice on funding to support local projects and work with organisations across Europe and internationally, to address mutual problems and common themes of interest.

Most of the funding that can be accessed is EU funding which will continue until the UK leaves the European Union.

Key bidding opportunities include Interreg Va, which runs from 2014 to 2020, (joint projects with French, Belgian and/or Dutch partners) and ESIF (overseen by  Coast to Capital LEP for our area) which provides vocational training to help people get to work or move towards participation in the labour market, along with funding to support small businesses.  

EU funding will be available in areas like:

  • vocational
  • training
  • adult education
  • youth
  • culture
  • environment
  • community safety

Grants can vary from paying travel and accommodation costs for an initial meeting, to much larger sums depending on the project and grants scheme.
