Event Details

This half day conference will introduce LEPs to key experts and providers of European funding to support the designing of effective European Structural and Investment Strategies.

This England-wide event will be an opportunity for Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) to learn how civil society organisations can provide expertise in the following key priority areas

  • Social Inclusion and match funding
  • Social Innovation
  • CLLD
  • Volunteer time
  • Social investment 

There will also be an opportunity to

  • discuss the opt-in prospectuses with the Big Lottery Fund
  • hear from other potential match-funders
  • get the latest information from government officials
  • share best practice from the sector and LEPs which are already working together

As the coordinator of the European Funding Network, NCVO has been working closely across the country to engage our local civil society members in the LEP dialogues that are now taking place.

You can read the latest on LEPs, Growth and EU funds on our blog
