Redundancy Action Scheme (ReAct)
The Welsh Government’s Redundancy Action Scheme (ReAct) provides
a package of support to help people who have been made redundant or
are under threat of redundancy.
Financial support helps individuals gain new skills, overcome
obstacles and improve their prospects of returning to work in the
shortest possible time.
There are three parts to the scheme:
- Employer Recruitment Support funds employers who recruit
individuals made redundant in the past six months. The award offers
up to £2,000 paid in four installments as a contribution towards
- Employer Training Support is a separate discretionary fund of
up to £1,000 that an employer can put towards the cost of the new
recruit’s job-related training.
- Recruitment Consultancy Support provides a comprehensive
package of recruitment support and guidance to help companies find
the right person.
Employers can choose whether to apply for Recruitment Support
alone or Recruitment and Training Support. Employer Training
Support can only be used in conjunction with Employer Recruitment
Applications must be submitted within six months of a new
employee’s date of redundancy with a previous employer. Companies
must not have received any other work-based training funding for an
individual since redundancy.
