Active Inclusion Youth

Project description

The Active Inclusion Funds aim to make a significant contribution to raising levels of employment and reducing economic inactivity in Wales.

Grants will fund engagement activities (Include) and/or paid, structured, supported employment (Achieve) with those furthest from the labour market, in order to give participants new skills and increased confidence that will enable them to become economically active.

Active Inclusion is not specific regarding any service or activity for an Include project or activities. For an Achieve project or activities, Active Inclusion will fund organisations to provide paid supported employment to support and develop young people who are not in employment, education or training and to progress them into unsupported employment.
