Community Learning Trust Fund – Apply Now

Mayor of Peterborough with Community Project Volunteers

The Community Learning Fund has been launched again this year to support and encourage the Voluntary and Community Sector, other third sectors and not-for-profit organisations to deliver innovative learning that supports disadvantaged adults aged 19+ and addresses the local key priorities, as well as responding to the purposes of Community Learning funding which are to:

  • maximise access to community learning for adults, bringing new opportunities and improving lives, whatever people’s circumstances
  • promote social renewal by bringing local communities together to experience the joy of learning and the pride that comes with achievement
  • maximise the impact of community learning on the social and economic well-being of individuals, families and communities.

The Trust will make available funding which local organisations and groups can bid for to offer informal community learning opportunities. The Trust’s funding will now also include the previous Neighbourhood Learning in Deprived Communities (NLDC) funding.
