The motivation for ‘ELIEMENTAL: breaking down barriers to enterprise’ project (www.eliemental.org) is the need to help reduce the psychological and social burdens of unemployment on groups vulnerable to social exclusion which may then lead to the greater re-employment or self-employment rates in the project target groups. Further, ELIEMENTAL supports the EU aim of assisting under-represented and socially marginalised groups into employment or self-employment through entrepreneurship in order to reduce the burden of under-employment and unemployment and improve social mobility. Our project design was based upon the findings of the EU-Erasmus funded ELIE project (http://elie-project.eu/) and on the consortium members’ individual research and work with relevant stakeholders and target groups experiencing poverty and social exclusion.
