The Bridge Project is funded by the Big Lottery and the European Socal Fund (ESF) as part of the Building Better Opportunities Programme
The Bridge Project is a new employability programme which is about getting people nearer to employment through personalised support and reaching out to some of the most vulnerable people in our community.
Bridge is jointly funded by the Big Lottery and European Social Fund.
The project is currently funded to September 2019. Bridge is a partnership between the Public Sector and the Voluntary and Community Sector. Northumberland County Council is the lead accountable body for the project.
Following a competitive process in 2015 a number of organisations were selected to come together to develop a partnership. The operational lead partner is VoiCeS Northumberland and the other partners are:
- Blyth Resource & Initiative Centre
- Cygnus Support
- Citizens Advice Northumberland
- Northumberland CVA
Bridge is an additional resource that will work in partnership with existing programmes and services.
