Birmingham City Council – Digital Birmingham successful in obtaining ESF funding

In November/December 2013 the Dept for Work and Pensions invited bids for European Social Fund (ESF) funded projects to support proposed Local Support Services (LSS) activity. The closing date for this exercise was 31 December 2013. The pilot projects will provide learning that will contribute to the development of the LSS and act as exemplars for other Local Authorities (LAs) wishing to access ESF to expand their LSS support in the future.

Birmingham City Council in conjunction with Gateway to Birmingham Advice Services (GBAS), West Midlands Fire Service, Citysave and DWP Employment Outreach are to create a Service Directory and Referral System (SDRS) that can be used as an accessible reference source for residents and agencies offering support to unemployed people in Birmingham.
