A new project to support young people aged between 16 and 24 years old who are not currently in employment, education or training has launched in Conwy County.
The ADTRAC project will provide these young people with personalised support and opportunities to succeed.
The ADTRAC initiative is led by Grŵp Llandrillo Menai, and delivered by the six North Wales local authorities in partnership with Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board; the £10.4m initiative is partially funded by the European Social Fund (ESF).
The ADTRAC project can offer young people between 16 and 24 in Conwy County:
Councillor Liz Roberts, Conwy’s Cabinet Member for Community Services, said: “I’m delighted to see this great collaborative project launch in Conwy County. It’s incredibly important that the different employability projects within the County, as well as other organisations such as Careers Wales and Job Centre Plus, work closely together – opening the door for young people to find out about the opportunities available out there for them.”
Marianne Jackson, Head of Community Development Service at Conwy County Borough Council, added: “I’m delighted that as a result of a lot of hard work the funding and the team is in place and ready to go - it’s great to see the project being launched. The project is a great opportunity for young people who encounter barriers to employment, education or training, this project could have a huge impact on their lives.”
