Active Inclusion funding now also available to support unemployed young people in Wales
Any organisations that can offer activities, qualifications or supported employment to young people who are not in employment, education or training, are invited to apply to WCVA’s Active Inclusion (Youth) Fund.
The fund is supported by the European Social Fund through Welsh Government, managed by WCVA and will operate in the West Wales and Valleys region.. It is very similar to the Active Inclusion funds already open for over 25s, but this fund will focus on 16 – 24 year olds, particularly those young people who are furthest from the labour market and have multiple barriers to employment.
If your organisation is already an ‘approved beneficiary’ for the Active Inclusion Fund, it may be eligible to apply to the youth fund now. If you are new to Active Inclusion, or European funding, WCVA will be holding a series of events across Wales, which will introduce the fund, explain the online application process and offer support with networking and project planning. Applications for the over 25’s are still open across Wales.
In Summary information events will cover:
Active Inclusion Youth – West Wales and the Valleys
Active Inclusion over 25’s – All Wales
Events will be held from 31st May to 8th June, register your interest by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org
