Colchester Borough Council’s Cabinet has agreed to submit an investment plan for the UK Shared Prosperity Fund, which if approved by the Government would bring £1.3m national funding into the borough as part of the UK Government Levelling Up programme.

Colchester’s proposed £1.3m investment plan, which has been developed with a range of partners to gather proposals that match the fund’s criteria, would see the money spent on: supporting businesses with advice and training; helping people into work in sectors such as construction, health, care, and creative; encouraging volunteering; providing specialist skills training; supporting creative businesses; encouraging innovation, and reducing crime.

The proposals have been based on evidence and feedback from education providers, the local voluntary sector, and the Department for Work and Skills, with the aim of building a strong and sustainable economy for the future.
