Vote resultOn 23 June 2016 the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union by 51.8% to 48.2%.

One of the many potential impacts that a UK exit from the EU could have is increased pressure on local authorities if, or when, European Social Funds (ESF) to the UK are terminated.

The Referendum Result map opposite shows how different areas of England and Wales voted.

In this blog post we analyse which local authorities are most at risk from ESF cuts and who, in order to maintain current levels of investment into employment, will have to identify alternative sources of funding.

We also look at a programme funded by ESF and give a clear view of the type of replacement investment that would be required.

How much does the UK contribute to the EU? And what does it get back?

One of the hotly debated topics of the referendum campaign was the net economic contribution made by the UK to the EU.

The EU budget, which is calculated in 7 year tranches, is made up of contributions from all 28 member states.

For the last funding period (2007-2013), the UK contributed €77.7 billion to the EU buget, a figure that includes a rebate negotiated by Margaret Thatcher, while €47.5 billion was invested back in a range of measures.

In the UK, these re-investments largely take the form of European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF), the Horizon 2020 research fund plus a range of more specific programmes such as Erasmus+.

Here, we focus on ESIF, which is made up of the following 5 components:

  1. European Regional Development Fund (ERDF)
  2. European Social Funds (ESF)
  3. Cohesion Funds
  4. European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD)
  5. European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF)

Specifically, we look at European Social Funds, which were set up under the Treaty of Rome to improve workers’ mobility and employment opportunities in the common market. Today, the ESF objectives can be broadly defined as to:

  • improve employment opportunities in the European Union and help raise standards of living
  • help people to get better skills and better job prospects
  • help equip the workforce with the skills needed by business in a competitive global economy

For 2007-2013, the UK received €4.47 billion of ESF funding which, when matched by national co-funding, brings the total spend on ESF projects to €8.6 billion. €3.5bn in ESF funding, which would likely all be matched by national contributions, has been allocated to the UK for 2014 – 2020 tranche.

How are ESF funds currently distributed within the UK?

Within the UK, ESF funds are allocated to Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs), geographical sub-divisions which often group together and  /or split traditional local authorities, as shown in the map below.

Successful applications to access the latest tranches of funds came from all 39 existing LEPs across England & Wales. However, following the vote to leave, a significant level of doubt has now been cast on the future availability of this investment.

Based on ESF legislation, the force majeure in the UK exiting the EU would allow ESF to be ‘decommitted’. In other words, for the purposes of this analysis, Policy in Practice assumes that ESF could be cut off mid-tranche and not be maintained through to 2020.

Of course, the ultimate impact of reduced ESF funding depends upon the priorities of the government, the extent to which it focuses investment on social programmes, and the impact of Brexit on the economy overall.

Political negotiations not-with-standing, for policy makers in Britain business will certainly not be as usual. Support to low income areas / households previously channelled via ESF is now at risk of being terminated, and alternative ways of funding may have to be secured by the local authorities most heavily impacted.

To compound the funding risks further, several local authorities in England and Wales are also in receipt of European Regional Development funds – money allocated to the poorest regions in the EU as an effort to achieve a European ‘convergence’.

Whilst ERD funds are focused more on industry, their termination could also ultimately add extra pressure on already beleaguered local authorities. For analysis of wider ESIF funding see JRF’s recent analysis.

Which local authorities in England and Wales are most at risk if ESF is terminated?

As shown in the map below, the geographical impact is very varied, with a notable distinction between the West of England/Wales and the East of England.

It is important to note two things. Firstly, ESF does not constitute direct transfers (as is the case with Agriculture subsidies which are paid straight to farmers), so the potential monetary loss per capita only serves as an indication of how people in each local authority will be affected. ESF invests in projects which in turn help people into work, training, skills etc. The value of this is particularly hard to capture.

Secondly, the figures above correspond to the per capita loss of 2014 – 2020 ESF that had been allocated as of April 2016. Given that just over 21% of the total ESF for 2014 – 2020 has been earmarked, the per capita loss in ESF for the whole period is likely to be a lot higher.

The chart below shows the per capita ESF allocated as of April 2016 from the 2014 – 2020 tranche.

ESF at risk

The main trends are as follows:

  1. Many councils in Wales and West Midlands severely affected

    This trend is particularly pronounced in Wales, where the local authorities making up the West Wales and The Valleys LEP are at risk of losing an average of £101.53 per person. Several local authorities in the West Midlands, Cornwall and Hull will also lose at least £50 per person in ESF.

  2. Local authorities / Boroughs in much of South West, London and the North moderately affected

    Several boroughs in North East greater London would risk losing at least £50 per person, while many LAs in Cornwall, Devon and Somerset would also be significantly affected.

  3. Few local authorities affected in South East / East of England

    Local authorities in the South East are significantly less affected than their Northern counterparts. With the exception of the London Boroughs, all local authorities in the South East will lose less than £25 per person, a figure which is arguably more manageable.

One stark conclusion from our analysis is that the potential loss in ESF funding equates to more per annum than has currently been allocated for the Work and Health programme, the planned successor to the Work Programme, administered by DWP.

What types of projects are at stake from ESF cuts?

Case study: Building Better Opportunities Project, North East England LEP

The North East LEP covers County Durham, Gateshead, Newcastle upon Tyne, North Tyneside, Northumberland, South Tyneside and Sunderland.

This project aims to tackle the root causes of poverty, promote social inclusion and to drive local jobs and economic growth. It has a total budget of £18,500,000, of which £9,500,000 comes from the ESF and £9,000,000 from the Big Lottery Fund.

In the North East, health issues have been identified as a significant barrier to work for many people. The Building Better Opportunities Project funds schemes that tackle this, such as one called ‘Fitness First’. This scheme runs a 12-week physical activity and well-being programme for homeless people in partnership with Northumbria University. The aim is to improve participants’ physical and mental health so that they are in better shape to find employment. They received £9,400.

Another example of a funded scheme is ‘Reaching the Streets’ in Newcastle Upon Tyne, which helps people, mainly aged between 16 and 35, who are affected by homelessness, alcohol and substance abuse, and mental and physical health issues. The scheme offers support on a one to one basis, and improves lives with psychotherapeutic interventions, peer support, recovery support, volunteering and mentoring. As this scheme takes place at such a personal level, the chances of success for people taking part is much greater. Tailored help can be given to each individual.

So, what now?

Ultimately, the referendum result has cast into doubt the European funding that LEPs (and in turn, local authorities) currently receive to improve employment opportunities, equip the workforce with skills needed by businesses and tackle the root causes of poverty.

Policy in Practice advocates that a future government should prioritise properly funded, effective interventions, like the Fitness First scheme mentioned above. This will lend continuity to efforts that tackle the root causes of poverty, and show that the government is ready to support people that are hardest hit, and most in need.

What next for post furlough employment support? The widely feared spike in unemployment due to the end of the Job Retention Scheme has not materialised as new research shows that over 86% of furloughed workers moved back into work.

Though reduced, unemployment is still predicted to peak at over 5% this autumn and more than a million job vacancies exist in the economy.

Against this backdrop, we invite guest speakers from different sectors to join our webinar to explore the work that they are doing to help people into employment, and help them to progress once they are there.
