Details

The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) and the European Commission have formally agreed and adopted the European Social Fund Operational Programme.

The European Social Fund Operational Programme is the main document for setting out the strategy and priorities for use of the fund to support the Europe 2020 strategy for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth. It also contains high level information on how the fund will be delivered, managed and evaluated.

European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF) include money from:

  • the European Social Fund (ESF)
  • European Regional Development Fund (ERDF)
  • part of the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD)

The funds are from the European Union for projects that create jobs and economic growth.

The ESF programme continues to invest in projects after the transition period ended on 31 December 2020. All funding must finish by the end of 2023.
