Kickstart. Getting young people back into work.

A £2 billion scheme for young people aged 16-24 claiming Universal Credit.

Kickstart is a new £2 billion scheme that has been announced as part of the government’s plan for helping young people aged 16-24 currently claiming Universal Credit to get back into work.

How does it work?

The scheme will fund high quality 6-month work placements that will support young people develop the skills they need to move into employment.

How do I apply?

To apply for a grant, a minimum of 30 placements are needed. As most employers are not able to offer this many, Kickstart Gateway organisations will facilitate applications from a number of employers in order to meet the minimum 30-placement requirement.
