Community Grants 5

The Community Grants 5 programme provides help for people in and around Hull with a mental health condition to get closer to work or training.

Community Grants is part-funded by European Social Fund.  The aim of the fund is to help unemployed people progress towards employment through access to learning and training opportunities.

Working for Health is working with a small group during a 3-month programme, running from March 2021 until May 2021, building skills, confidence and optimism so that people can move closer to the world of work.  

This programme provides specialist Work Recovery Coaches and a Peer Worker to provide one to one support to uncover strengths and skills and to overcome any potential barriers.

Workshops will be provided either via Zoom or outdoors on our allotment and these will include job search and application support, digital skills, and techniques to reduce stress and grow in confidence and resilience.


Humber Learning Consortium is the lead partner, providing specialist support and training for young people to access work and learning. 
The ESF Community Grants programme is commissioned through the Education Skills Fund Agency (ESFA) and is a key investment that supports the delivery of the ESIF strategy. 
Community Grants is co-financed by the European Social Fund.
