Extra funding aids project accessibility

Did you know Erasmus+ offers additional funding to ensure projects are inclusive and accessible to participants with special needs or a disability? Funding can be used for a wide variety of needs, such as specialist equipment, carers and medical support. For example, additional funding enabled the Permaculture Association schools project to include children who could not otherwise have participated.

Make a difference with the European Solidarity Corps

Are you an organisation working with young people with fewer opportunities? European Solidarity Corps funding supports young people aged between 18-30 to boost their CVs, learn new skills and make a difference at home or abroad through volunteering or work placements.

Nominate your learners for EuroApprentices

We are inviting organisations to put forward current or former apprentices to become EuroApprentices in 2019. Successful nominees will join the network of Erasmus+ funded apprentices and have the opportunity to promote the programme by sharing their personal experiences. The UK National Agency will provide training and support. The deadline for applications is 15 December.

Encouraging disadvantaged students to go abroad

Research shows that less advantaged higher education students have the most to gain from a placement abroad, but they are the least likely to take part. Learn how higher education institutions can encourage and support disadvantaged students, with useful toolkits, reports and good practice examples from UUKi, the Irish Universities Association and the European Commission.
