The Eligibility Questionnaire for the new round of Active Inclusion Fund is now available and may be accessed through WCVA’s Multipurpose Application Portal (MAP) – you can access MAP here.
Organisations on the Approved Beneficiary List for Active Inclusion funding will have received a notification from MAP that a new round of Active Inclusion funding is now open. The closing date for this round is 9 October 2020.
Please do not hesitate to contact the Active Inclusion team via firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone on 0300 111 0124. They will be happy to assist you with any queries you might have about your project ideas and also with questions about completing the application form and the project profile.
If your organisation has been on the ABL for some time but has yet to make an application, there’s no better time than now to take the first steps towards making an application. The team are ready and waiting to guide you through the steps you need to take to enter the world of European funding.
If your organisation does decide to apply in this round, there is still scope to put forward projects that are 18 months in duration, allowing for greater flexibility and forward planning.
While the Covid-19 specific round of Active Inclusion funding has now ended, the team are also able to offer advice on how projects can still take place under the current phase of lockdown and the restrictions we face, recognising that we have all had to adapt the way that we carry out our day to day activities in order to support both participants and the wider community, and make sure that everyone stays safe.
The Active Inclusion Fund is managed by WCVA, supported through Welsh Government by funding from European Structural and Investment Funds. It aims to reduce economic inactivity in Wales and improve the employability of disadvantaged people.
