The European Social Fund
Investing in people : what it is and what it does
This brochure introduces the European Social Fund: setting out what it is and what it does; and describing how ESF activities are helping many groups of people from across Europe to get new skills and improve their job prospects. To accompany this brochure, there is a series of 27 country-sheets, one for each EU Member State. These provide country-specific information on ESF funding priorities and programmes and use examples of real projects to illustrate how ESF funding is boosting employment and social cohesion.
