Madrid - ESF

Programme description

The OP for Madrid has a total envelope of €643 million, with €334 million coming from the EU budget. More than 54% of the budget is earmarked for social inclusion measures.

Overall, the programme and its planned measures aim to contribute to addressing the needs and challenges of Madrid:

  • Reduction of difficulties for disadvantaged groups in accessing to the labour market.

  • Reduction of the risk of poverty.

  • Improving education and training and reducing early school leaving.

  • Increasing employment and quality of jobs, and eliminate factors of inequality between men and women.

Expected impact

  • Increase employment opportunities amongst the most disadvantaged groups, stimulate and increase entrepreneurship, as well as increase the labour market participation of women in those sectors with a low female representation.

  • Improve the employability of those further away from the labour market through integrated pathways for social and labour integration and by promoting employment measures as the means to combat social exclusion.

  • Reduce the levels of early school leaving through personalised support and projects in specialised centres to motivate and encourage pupils at risk as well as increase the quality of and participation levels in vocational training.
