Help Young People - grow your business


Thank you for your interest in the Government's Kickstart scheme. Here is a brief overview:

  • The scheme is designed to get young people into the workplace through a six month placement with a business.
  • The Government, through a grant, will fund paying the individual for 25 hours a week on minimum wage (the employer can top this up in terms of both hourly rate and hours per week).
  • At the end the six months, the employer may choose to offer the individual a permanent position or they can go back into the market, hopefully armed with news skills for prospective employers.
