The programmes offer additional funding (inclusion support and exceptional costs) to persons who need additional support for their participation. The funding may be used for
- special needs (e.g., an assistant, a support person, accessible housing or special software) resulting from an illness, disability or learning difficulty
- a preparatory visit, in which the participant familiarises themselves with the future destination in advance with a representative from the sending organisation.
- special needs caused by economic, cultural, geographic or social reasons
The funding rules vary by action. Familiarise yourself with the funding rules of different actions in the Programme Guide.
The Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps programmes also encourage to pay attention to different target groups in the contents and all activities of the project in a manner that is as inclusive as possible.
