Kickstart Scheme

What is the Kickstart Scheme?


The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) launched the £2 billion Kickstart Scheme which was to help young people be at the heart of the economic recovery. It's an “innovative way to help young people into work and spur Britain’s economic revival” while opening doors to ensure UK businesses bounce back stronger.
