Since 2015, TAP has supported over 100 projects to apply for ERDF and ESF funding. Of these, 75% were successful and were offered a contract.
In 2019, TAP held two Showcase events in Hessle and York, where projects had the opportunity to highlight their achievements to the local LEPs and funding bodies (Department for Work and Pensions for ESF and the Ministry for Housing, Communities, and Local Government – now Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities - for ERDF, also known as Managing Authorities).
In October 2021, a final, virtual Showcase was shown live online where we revisited some projects from the first Showcases, as well as introduce new projects and how projects had risen to the challenges brought about by Covid-19.
The videos from all the Showcases can be viewed on our YouTube channel:
