NA Strategic Partnership on Inclusion

16 Erasmus+ Youth National Agencies & SALTO centres cooperate strategically to involve more inclusion organisations and increase the participation of young people with fewer opportunities in the E+ programme.

A strategic approach​

The consortium of NAs developed a strategic approach to reach out and involve 3 target groups that are underrepresented in Erasmus+ in the different countries. In subgroups, they take the following steps:

  1. mapping new organisations & needs analysis
  2. motivation, information & capacity building
  3. partnership building & networking
  4. support for international mobility as part of their inclusion work
  5. mapping existing resources & tools or creating new ones
  6. monitoring impact & documenting the tested approaches 

3 target groups

The NAs in the SPI work on these 3 strands:

  • (Organisations working with) young people with disability and health issues (FR, DE, IS, LV, HU, EE, PL & SALTO SEE; RO, PT & SI only sending)
  • (Organisations working with) young people in NEET situation/low educational attainment (EE, LV, AT, UK, CZ, RO, IT & PT; FR only sending)
  • (Organisations working with) young people from disadvantaged rural areas (SI, EE, RO, PT, IE & SALTO SEE)

Interim results (June 2018)

  • The SPI reached out to 2237 NEW inclusion organisations
  • 625 of those (=28%) responded positively/showed interest
  • 641 inclusion workersof those 'interested organisations' (=103%) participated in a national SPI activity - some NAs worked with umbrella organisations who sent more than one inclusion worker
  • 208 inclusion workers of those 'interested organisations' (=33%) participated in an international SPI activity
  • In June 2018, these inclusion workers/organisations organised 45 E+ projects as a result of SPI, including appr. 654 young people with fewer opportunities - but we expect more at the next deadline

The SPI Disability strand developed an inspirational guide for youth organisations who want to organise mobility projects involving young people with disabilities - yes it is possible!
