This chapter aims to show how geographical exclusion affects North West Wales, and to report on efforts to provide support to the local people who are affected by it. It is argued that geography intensifies employment disadvantage, especially for those who also experience other forms of discrimination and exclusion in the labour market that is related to disability or age. The discussion also considers the human rights dimension to employment. It furthermore explores the view that people's ‘rights’ to suitable employment should not be at the cost of their ‘right’ to live in the area of their choosing.

Keywords:   geographical exclusion, support, employment disadvantage, human rights dimension, suitable employment
