Action Towards Inclusion Project


Are you looking to develop your skills and experience, but as a carer, facing barriers to accessing training or other opportunities? We can offer you support to overcome any issues associated with caring by reviewing your situation and providing solutions to help you get back into work or training.

If you are interested in finding out more, please call us on 01723 850155 or email

Action Towards Inclusion is funded by the Big Lottery and European Social Fund as part of the Building Better Opportunities initiative.

The aims of the project are to promote the benefits of developing new skills and interests with a view to carers taking paid or unpaid employment (if they wish). To offer support with training and job opportunities by working with training providers and employers to create individual packages to meet the carers needs.
