Folkestone Community Works
The Folkestone Community Works Programme
Folkestone Community Works is a CLLD programme investing match-funded EU money into projects that will help local people and businesses make the most of existing and new opportunities. It has two main aims:
Enhancing the local economy: We can financially support innovative projects that not only strengthen opportunities for people but also enables your business to grow.
Helping residents on their journey into work: We can support those wanting support in finding a job – either by providing assistance or additional training.
The programme management team is available to assist applicants throughout the whole process. Successful projects have to be completed by June 2022.
To discuss your project, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also email us to be added to our distribution list for future calls.
