Funding for individuals and businesses

ReAct is a package of support to help people who have been made redundant get back into employment as quickly as possible.

All funding under ReAct is discretionary and subject to eligibility and conditions.

ReAct for individuals

ReAct could provide a contribution towards the cost of vocational training courses to help you to find a new job. ReAct support is available if you:

  • have become unemployed in the last six months as a result of redundancy, are currently unemployed and have not been in continuous employment for six weeks or more since being redundant; or
  • are under a current notice of redundancy; and
  • are a resident in Wales on the date of issue of notice of redundancy
  • are aged 25 or over
  • are not undertaking any training which is funded directly or indirectly by public funds (including Work Based Learning programmes such as Modern Apprenticeships).
