12 What is a project outline?
Project outlines describe each specific funding opportunity that is available and set out what we want each project to achieve and the areas or groups of people that it needs to target. We’ll only fund one project per project outline. Although each project outline is different, there are five key principles that unite them. Projects must: Help the most disadvantaged Tackle social exclusion Be focused on the capabilities of each individual Lead to better coordinated services Create new opportunities for work. Each project outline will have an application deadline and project start and completion dates. See individual project outlines for details.

13 Who can apply? Any organisation is able to apply, however most of the project outlines available will be better suited to partnership working. We will still accept applications from organisations working on their own, but it is unlikely that a single organisation will have the breadth and depth of experience needed to tackle the complex multiple issues that the people who’ll benefit face on a daily basis.

14 What is the application process?
The application process consists of two stages. Stage one is fully open and competitive and from this we’ll select a shortlist of applicants to take through to stage two. An invitation to stage two does not, however, guarantee that the project will be funded. Funding and support will be made available to assist those organisations submitting a stage 2 proposal

15 The BBO ESF Support team provides support on working under ESF rules and regulations including eligibility, actual costs, record-keeping, data reporting, publicity and cross-cutting themes. The purpose of this support is to increase the capability of organisations to handle European funds, both under the current BBO programme and in the future. A telephone and helpline is available to enable potential applicants to discuss specific queries with an adviser. Organisations and individuals may also contact BBO ESF Support by for a written response. BBO ESF Support Helpline: BBO ESF Support
