The VCS Assist project was set up to build the skills of the VCS (Voluntary and Community Sector) to secure and deliver ESF (European Service Fund) and Big Lottery Funding. Rocket Science works as part of a consortium of organisations which have devised a new model of assistance for third sector employment-related service providers. The VCS Assist partners have identified and addressed a range of skills needs and cultural changes required to ensure that providers have every opportunity to adapt to new ESF funding arrangements, including the move to prime contractor models and outcome based funding.
