ReAct Scheme

If you’ve been made redundant, you could be entitled to ReAct funding to retrain or update your skills. If you’ve got a new employer lined up, they too could get funding towards your wages and further training.

Support under the ReAct scheme is available for individuals who:

  • Have been made redundant in the past 12 months or have become unemployed for a reason other than redundancy in the past 12 months and who are currently unemployed. Applicants must not have not been in continuous employment for 6 weeks or more between the date they became unemployed and the date of the ReAct grant application; or
  • Are currently under formal notice of redundancy
  • Applicants must have not undertaken any publicly-funded training since being made redundant or becoming unemployed, including the work-based learning suite of programmes such as an apprenticeship
