About Building Better Opportunities

 

RISE is supported through the Building Better Opportunities (BBO) programme, which is funded by the Big Lottery Fund and European Social Fund (ESF). BBO is designed to support communities, families and individuals to gain the tools and skills necessary to find and sustain jobs they value – helping them to integrate, and increasing confidence and wellbeing.

Building Better Opportunities sees the Big Lottery Fund matching funds from European Social Fund (ESF) 2014 – 2020, to provide joint investment in local projects that tackle poverty and promote social inclusion. Over the next few years the funding will be delivered in 38 Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) areas according to local priorities.
