The Community Renewal Fund is one of the precursors to the UK Shared Prosperity Fund and is an opportunity to support the voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) sector to be creative in addressing local needs, and demonstrate some innovative ways to delivery future funding.

Your Consortium are leading a bid to City of York Council to deliver this programme. Your Consortium are looking for partners who can deliver Skills and Employability Projects or Community Conversations. They are six month projects starting in September 2021 and the value is from £5,000 to £40,000. Employability Projects can be on a number of themes including digital skills, job search or improving basic skills. For Community Conversations they are looking for partners who have an established relationship with local communities who would like to further develop their participatory engagement skills and pilot a project to have a meaningful series of “community conversations.”
