Paddington Development Trust, was appointed by the ESFA to manage the allocation of 3.7 million pounds of Community Grants in West and Central London. Each grant can be a maximum of £20,000. The money is to help charities and small organisations support unemployed people.

This may be through good advice and guidance; outreach work; improving basic and digital skills; removing barriers; supporting work placements; improving confidence and motivation or helping people access skills training and jobs brokerage.
