Today we welcome the first of many placements as part of the Kickstart Scheme here at M&D Care. This is a fantastic opportunity that we are really proud to be involved in.
The Kickstart Scheme is a fund set up by the government, as part of the ‘Plan for Jobs’ to create hundreds of thousands of high quality 6-month job placements for young people. This scheme can help support young people to develop new skills and to help them move into sustained employment after they have completed their funded job.
Jobs from the Kickstart Scheme are open to 16-24 year olds, who are claiming Universal Credit, and are at risk of long term unemployment. If you have a work coach they will talk to you about the Kickstart Scheme and whether it’s right for you.
