Social Inclusion Pathways to Better Engagement (OC14S19P1644)
Call to run a project which delivers intervention and support for those out of work and people who are most at risk of social exclusion in the Greater Lincolnshire area.
This is a Call for projects to deliver provision across the Greater Lincolnshire LEP area including those more rural communities, where appropriate and is intended to closely align to the Greater Lincolnshire Active Inclusion programme. Projects will need to augment existing mainstream and ESF provision to provide a more comprehensive level of support to activity than is currently provided.
Specific activities could include:
•Tailored support and adequate opportunities for those currently designated as inactive, who can work to make a successful and sustainable entry into employment or education.
•Tackling barriers faced by people in workless households and troubled families or with multiple disadvantages, so that they can enter, and make progress at work or in education.
•Targeting people who face barriers such as homelessness, debt, drug or alcohol problems, and mental health issues.
•Targeting disadvantaged communities, and deprived areas in line with local needs.
•Tackling discrimination and barriers faced by ethnic minorities and disabled people.
•Tackling barriers faced by disadvantaged people in rural communities, who lack access to services.
