West Somerset Essential Life Skills Funding

The Essential Life Skills programme is funded by the Department for Education as part of its support for the West Somerset Opportunity Area.

The programme aims to enable young people to improve their confidence, knowledge and skills through participation in extra-curricular activity programmes.

Grants are available to groups and individual young people in the West Somerset District Council area to develop and expand youth provision and enable young people to access positive activities. Group organisations like youth providers, schools and voluntary organisations, can apply for grant funding of up to £5,000 to either develop new activities, or expand their existing provision.
