Staffordshire Priority 3 Action Plan

External link to the European Regional Development Fund web site||Funding for community projects

Using over £4 million of funding from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) || we have helped to regenerate some of the most deprived areas of Staffordshire.

Working in partnership with the borough and district councils, the voluntary sector and local community groups, our priority 3 action plan|| has supported a variety of projects that have improved the lives of people by overcoming problems such as unemployment, low educational attainment, homelessness and a lack of basic skills.

Projects developed

22 projects across Burton, Cannock, Tamworth and Stoke have been developed and delivered that have:

  • provided advice, guidance and counselling to over 2,000 people
  • trained as many as 452 unemployed and employed people
  • funded approximately 80 child-care places 

  • helped over 170 people find employment
  • generated £152,600+ in sales from 4 newly created community enterprises
  • provided 3767 square metres of community premises
  • provided additional training skills for over 15 trainers
  • created 17 new business start-ups

Unfortunately, no further projects are being funded by ourselves under the programme.
