About the Project

The European Structural and Investment Fund (ESIF) is the European Union's main funding programme for supporting growth and jobs. SWLEP's ESIF programme will invest to help businesses compete and grow, and improve people's skills and employment prospects.

SWLEPs ESIF strategy was developed following an extensive period of consultation with over 15 partners in Swindon and Wiltshire during 2013-14. The strategy sets out how the £78 million investment would be used to create more than 1,500 jobs, help 2,500 businesses to innovate, compete and grow, and support over 9,000 people to progress in their career.
