The Rural Centre/ Eurolink is a Eurodesk Ambassador with the main aim of spreading the word about Eurodesk UK and European mobility opportunities in their day-today work.
Eurodesk UK is an information and support service to help young people and youth organisations find out about opportunities in Europe.
The Eurodesk UK website gives tailored information for young people aged 13-30 on the different opportunities available in Europe and an insight into what it’s like to take part in European youth projects.
The UK team is part of a wider European network with nation al representatives in 34 countries. A coordination office based inBrussels makes sure all national Eurodesk offices have the latest updates from the European Commission, and develop tools and resources to help young people find and engage with the opportunities available to them.
The Eurodesk network is a recognised support structure under Erasmus+, the EU programme for education, training, youth and sport. Eurodesk works closely with the National Agencies across Europe to provide up-to-date information and guidance on Erasmus+ and many other funding programmes.
Heather McLaughlin attended the EurodeskUK Network Meeting in London in December 2016 to celebrate the achievements of 2016 and to collaborate with other Erodesk Ambassadors and partners to plan for 2017.
