The Kickstart Scheme has been launched by the Government to provide funding to employers to create new 6-month job placements for young people who are currently on Universal Credit and at risk of long-term unemployment. This £2 billion fund aims to create hundreds of thousands of job placements for young people in England, Scotland and Wales.
Any organisation in the private, public and voluntary sectors, regardless of size, can apply for funding.
