VCS Assist 2.0 is an EU part-funded project supporting voluntary and community sector organisations in London to successfully access the European Social Fund and deliver ESF projects. It succeeds the VCS Assist project which operated during the 2007-2013 ESF round.  From the beginning of 2016 VCS Assist 2.0 project partners, London Voluntary Service Council and the Evelyn Oldfield Unit, will deliver:

  • One to one surgeries for organisations intending to apply for or holding ESF funding, providing a range of support from application guidance, complying with ESF requirements and ESF project management
  • Workshops focusing on particular skills required for ESF and opportunities
  • Forum events, bringing together organisations interested in ESF from across London to share information and provide networking opportunities
  • Regular updates on ESF opportunities and progress, including through the this website and monthly e-bulletins.

The project partners are grateful to the following funders for providing match funding for the VCS Assist 2.0 project: City Bridge Trust, Comic Relief, London Councils and Trust for London. Further queries about the VCS Assist 2.0 programme should be directed to LVSC Policy and Project Manager, Nehal Bradley-Depani on
