The Larger Picture

Working for Health is one of the Keyworker partners of the Action Towards Inclusion programme and specialise in employment for people with a mental health condition.

Action Towards Inclusion is the name of a new £7.4m partnership project taking place in the York, North Yorkshire and East Riding Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) area and is managed by Your Consortium in Knaresborough.

Action Towards Inclusion is part of the national Building Better Opportunities (BBO) programme that brings together funding from the Big Lottery Fund and the European Social Fund (ESF) to help tackle the poverty and social exclusion faced by the most disadvantaged people in England. By joining up with ESF, the BBO programme will double the impact of Big Lottery money at a local level and offer a route to European funding for organisations that may have found it difficult to access it in the past.

There are over 50 partners involved in the Action Towards Inclusion project acting as Keyworkers and, in some cases, Intervention Partners.

Action Towards Inclusion has a number of fundamental aims:

  • Help the most disadvantaged
  • Tackle social exclusion
  • Be focused on the capabilities of each individual
  • Lead to better coordinated services
  • Create new opportunities for work

How Does Action Towards Inclusion Work..?

Action Towards Inclusion is based on a Keyworker and Intervention Partner model.

Keyworkers will engage and sign eligible participants onto the project. They will be the main point of contact for participants throughout the Action Towards Inclusion project

Intervention Partners will provide a range of specific support which will help to remove participants’ barriers.

Who is eligible to take part in the project..?

Someone is eligible to receive support if:

They are legally resident in the UK and able to take paid employment in European Union member states, and they are unemployed or economically inactive.
