Funds & grants
The Employability programme takes a personalised approach with a tailored package of support interventions, with participants involved in planning their own route. Services include coaching & mentoring, financial advice & guidance, structured and accredited learning, work placements, volunteering, employability support, and practical interventions such as providing transport, childcare, equipment and interview clothes. Support is specifically targeted at underrepresented groups and those with additional barriers to participation.
Tailored for individual needs, it offers a wide range of support from across our network of community organisations to help people to achieve their dreams and goals by helping them move towards or into employment.
There is a wide range of support available to meet the diverse needs of the local community, whether they are disabled, homeless, a migrant, lone parent, isolated or facing other factors holding them back, Community Connections North aims to help you overcome and grasp the local opportunities available to you.
The programme runs across Wisbech, March, Whittlesey, Chatteris, Kings Lynn, West Norfolk, Rutland, Huntingdonshire, Ely and East Cambridgeshire, The area of the Greater Cambridge and Greater Peterborough LEP Fenland area (GCGP LEP).
BBO is a project funded by the European Social Fund and the National Lottery, through the National Lottery Community Fund to support projects in England that tackle poverty and promote social inclusion.
Our programme aims to help those most furthest from the labour market on a journey to employment, training, education or active job seeking.
We work with individuals, identifying the direction they would like to go, what training, skills or qualifications they might need and foremost helping them break down the barriers that may have kept them from moving on in the past.
An important part of the eMploY-ABILITY project is not only achieving outcomes but to raise the wellbeing of the participants. Our Key Workers use Work Star to chart an individual’s wellbeing and these are reviewed at regular meetings to look at areas that have progressed and areas that may need extra input.

Wisbech CLLD Community Led Local Development
CLLD is an innovative way of distributing investment from European Social Funds to support people to gain new skills and increase their chances of getting a job. Local people make the decision on how funding should be allocated and spent.
The programme will fund local projects aimed at:
• increasing the employment chances of local people;
• supporting people to move closer to the labour market;
• increasing participation in community learning programmes that support people into work or volunteering;
• enhancing access to services, transport, information technology and advice.
