Kickstart – New Partnership Opportunity

We are very excited to announce that Your Consortium are bidding to manage the new  National Government Kickstart programme.
Kickstart is part of the government’s offer to support young people who are at risk of long-term unemployment as a result of the current social and economic challenges
It provides real job placements for 18-24 year olds currently claiming Universal Credit, to gain experience, skills and confidence.
Employers receive funding for 25 hours/week on National Living Wage for 6 months and  the programme will support large employers who can create 30 or more placements, or partnerships of smaller organisations who can come together to create 30 placements.
We want to create a partnership of values-based organisations who are committed to creating meaningful and inclusive placements for young people of all backgrounds, with a focus on providing genuine community benefit.
