No-one Left Behind – Activity Agreements

Scottish Government funded Stage 1 employability provision is delivered in the City of Edinburgh Council area by Third Sector providers under the branding of Activity Agreements. April 2019 saw this change to No One Left Behind (NOLB) funding with the formal change taking place in April 2020.

The new NOLB Activity Agreements are delivered across the City, with provision split between five hubs: two in the North, two in the South and one in the City Centre. Activity Agreements are aimed at those aged 15.5-19, but up to age 26 for those with multiple barriers as stated in the NOLB Emerging Best Practice Guide. Dedicated staff work with young people to agree a bespoke package of activity to encourage and support them in taking the next step towards a positive destination.

Referrals for Activity Agreements are handled by the Business Growth and Inclusion team within City of Edinburgh Council. For more information on referrals and how to contact the team, please go to the Activity Agreements(this will open in a new window) page on the Council’s website.
