Everyone deserves a chance
A new £10m funding programme aims to ‘boost the employment prospects of young people in Wales with a learning disability and/or learning difficulty including Autistic Spectrum Disorder’.  The Getting Ahead 2 programme aims to help young people aged 16 to 25 who have a learning disability and/or learning difficulty into undertaking a paid work placement lasting between 6-12 months to enhance their chances of progressing into sustainable employment by increasing their employability skills.   Third sector organisations are invited to apply with one grant of £10m due to be awarded to the successful applicant early next year.
