Action Towards Inclusion is a NEW intervention launched in Harrogate, York, Selby and Hambleton. The expectation is that the team will be busy as their first referral has already been received.

What is Action Towards Inclusion (ATI)?

ATI provides keyworker support for individuals, over 18 who are unemployed or economically inactive. Foundation will offer direct support to help participants to progress into job-search, education, training and employment. Alongside offering support to access Intervention Partners who can provide specific activities aimed at removing barriers associated with health, finances and skills.

The ATI programme will provide support to access volunteering, training and employment opportunities.

What to expect:
•  A keyworker will work with other partner agencies to offer a tailored support programme;
