Gateshead Goes Local
Funding totalling £2.2 million has been awarded to Gateshead to stimulate economic growth and jobs in disadvantaged areas within the borough.
It will help those furthest from the jobs market move towards employment or enterprise by addressing barriers such as health issues, childcare or adult care dependency.
The mix of European Regional Development Fund and European Social Fund monies can be accessed by applying here and supports most of central Gateshead, stretching from Dunston to Pelaw, encompassing the town centre and south to Chowdene.
The funding is available until March 2022 and will be used to provide grants of between £20,000 and £200,000 to support employment and enterprise initiatives. Applicants will be required to provide match funding of between 40% and 50% of the overall project cost.
