Building Better Opportunities brings together funding from the Big Lottery Fund and the European Social Fund to help tackle poverty and social exclusion. Action Towards Inclusion is the name of the project taking place in York, North Yorkshire and East Riding Local Enterprise Area. There are projects taking place all across England each with a distinct name and focus but five principles underpin them all:
- Help the most disadvantaged
- Tackle social exclusion
- Be focused on the capabilities of each individual
- Create new opportunities for work
Peasholme Charity is delivering a keyworking service within the project aiming to support individuals to access education / training or to gain employment.
