About the Marches ESF Technical Assistance Project for Social Inclusion

The Marches European Social Fund Technical Assistance Project has been implemented to provide additional capacity within the Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) area so all those involved including stakeholders can benefit from opportunities which the European Structural and Investment Fund (ESIF) programme presents.

The three local authorities in the Marches LEP are involved in delivering the European Social Fund Technical Assistance (TA) project.  Herefordshire Council are the accountable body for TA for the European Social Fund (ESF).  Shropshire Council and Telford and Wrekin Council are delivery partners.  There are members of staff from each local authority who will support the delivery across the three counties.

Over the next few years the project team will be delivering a work programme for the Social Inclusion element of the European Structural and Investment Fund Strategy 2014-2020.
