Active Inclusion helps to give local organisations the chance to support economically inactive and long term unemployed people back to employment. This could be through a range of interventions from developing work relevant skills, providing accredited qualifications and paid supported employment placements.
The Active Inclusion Fund is managed by Wales Council for Voluntary Action (WCVA) supported by funding from European Structural and Investment Funds.
The funding pots address the priority 'tackling poverty and social exclusion' by increasing labour market participation and helping people to access sustainable employment (for over 25s) and 'youth employment attainment' (for 16 to 24 year olds).
If you feel that you have the ability to support people facing complex barriers back into work, through providing training and development opportunities or supported work placements Active Inclusion may have the funding to help you do it.
