Staffordshire Community Learning Trust Responsiveness Fund

The Staffordshire Community Learning Trust Responsiveness Fund (CLTRF) offers local grants for the delivery of adult learning programmes which address the identified needs of local communities. The CLTRF is funded by the Education and Skills Funding Agency.

The funding is for the delivery of education and training for adults returning to learning (aged 19+ as of 1st August 2018).

Funding available to support Staffordshire’s communities

Organisations from across Staffordshire are being invited to apply for funding to help support their local communities.

A new round of the £10m annual fund available through the Ministry of Defence’s Armed Forces Covenant Fund is now open until the end of 2018. This funding offers financial support to organisations and projects to help bring together Armed Forces and civilian communities and deliver local services to the Armed Forces Community.
