The UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UKSPF or the Fund) is a central pillar of the UK government’s ambitious Levelling Up agenda and a significant component of its support for places across the UK.
The primary goal of the UKSPF is to build pride in place and increase life chances across the UK.
The Fund has been split into three priority areas:
• Community and Place
• Supporting Local Business; and
• People and Skills
The grant is under the People and Skills provision and has two principal aims: employment support for economically inactive people (benefit and non-benefit claimants) and funding skills provision to provide people with the skills needed to progress in life and work, including supporting local areas to fund local skills needs.
Blaenau Gwent County Borough Council invite organisations to apply for funding to support the Council’s delivery of the UKSPF objectives.
Closing date for applications is: 29th March 2023
Application forms and guidance can be found here.
