Walney Extension Skills Fund

Introduction and Background

It is widely recognised that the UK will have a shortage of technical and engineering skills needed to meet the UK’s future employment needs. With this in mind, each year, up to £100,000 of the main Walney Extension Community Fund will be set aside for a “STEM Educational Fund”.

The aim is to provide educational and learning opportunities for people within the Fund’s benefit area, to help to improve their skills and employment opportunities.

The 2023 STEM Fund is closed to applications.
