WCVA More opportunities for Active Inclusion Funding to 2022
WCVA is pleased to confirm that the next phase of Active Inclusion funding is now open to applications and will continue to be open for applications for the next few years.
In good news for the third sector in Wales, it’s very much business as usual, but the length of eligible projects has now been extended so they can be delivered up to June 2022.
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.
Organisations that have previously completed an Eligibility Questionnaire and are on the Approved Beneficiaries List are already eligible to apply. The grant application form has also been updated to make the process easier.
Tessa White, Head of IB Grant & Verification at WCVA, said ‘We’ve had great success with the current Active Inclusion programme to date and want to emphasise that whatever happens with Brexit, these projects can be delivered until June 2022, so we would encourage anyone who’s interested to apply.’
There are four rounds:
West Wales & the Valleys 25+
West Wales & the Valleys Youth
East Wales 25+
East Wales Youth
