The Active Inclusion Fund aims to help organisations improve the employability of disadvantaged people who need extra assistance to access the labour market.
It does this by offering supported employment placements, funded
training opportunities and skills and confidence building
activities, and is looking for new applicants.
A new Invitation to Apply (ITA) for a new round of
funding went out on 6 November for organisations who have
submitted an Eligibility Questionnaire (EQ) and are on the Approved
Beneficiary List (ABL), and we are looking for organisations on the
ABL to take advantage of this.
Does this sound like it could be your organisation?
There are four rounds:
West Wales & the Valleys 25+
West Wales & the Valleys Youth
East Wales 25+
This could be the last chance to apply for 9 month
projects - we are hoping the fund will be extended, but
nothing has been confirmed yet, so we would encourage any
organisations that may have been sitting on a project to take this
opportunity while they still can.
Organisations on the ABL should have had a notification to alert
them of this latest round, but if you haven't, we advise
you to log on to eTenderWales
to make sure your contact details are up to date.
The closing date for round 6 is 14 December
2018. Projects will run from April 2019 - December
If you are not already on the ABL there may be another chance to
apply for funding, so submit an EQ by 1
January 2019 for future grant rounds.
