PROGRAMMES IN FORMER DTLR

New Deal for Communities

  New Deal for Communities is a key programme in the Government's strategy to tackle multiple deprivation in the most deprived neighbourhoods in the country, giving some of our poorest communities the resources to tackle their problems in an intensive and co-ordinated way. The problems of each area will be unique but partnerships must tackle five key issues of poor job prospects; high levels of crime; educational under-achievement; poor health; and problems with housing and the physical environment.

EUROPEAN REGIONAL DEVELOPMENT FUND

  The figures for each region are provided below. It is not possible to separate out those programmes with specific employment elements as the priorities for each programme cover a variety of issues. For example, the East of England 2000-06 programme priority three is Community Economic Regeneration and supports the regeneration of disadvantaged communities and facilitates access to opportunity for the most excluded individuals in the labour market. Clearly this could cover a number of issues including employment.
