As you will know, ERSA has campaigned on the UK Shared Prosperity Fund since 2017, as Local Authorities now await funding decisions from central government. We would like to hear from our members about their experiences with the replacement for the European Social Fund so far.

After our CEO, Elizabeth Taylor, met with Guy Opperman MP and his team, ERSA sent off a document to senior civil servants which argued for the moving forward of the ‘People and Skills’ strand of the UKSPF. We’d like to take this opportunity to say thank you to every organisation who contributed to that report.

We’re now asking the employment support sector to fill out a 5 minute survey on their experiences on the transition to the UK Shared Prosperity Fund.

Please complete the short survey by Monday 30 January, 5pm. You can access the survey here.

Share the survey with your employability delivery partners

Please take 5 minutes to complete ERSA’s survey asking for employment support providers to highlight funding end dates and experiences of the end of ESF and transition to UKSPF.
