Kickstart scheme

The Government’s Kickstart Scheme provides funding to create new job placements for 16 to 24 year olds who are at risk of long term unemployment. 

The scheme allows organisations to:

  • Create an employment opportunity for individuals who are unemployed and aged 16-24
  • Access 100% of the funding for a post of 25 hours per week, and for a period of 6 months
  • Apply for £1,500 towards the cost of training or any other costs
