A new Job Grant for young people who face barriers to gaining employment

A new Job Grant proposed by Scottish Government will provide support to young people with the costs of starting work has been warmly welcomed by OPFS. It will be paid to 16-24-year olds who have been in receipt of a qualifying benefit. OPFS organised workshops to enable young single mothers to give feedback on their experiences of the UK social security system and their views on the new Job Grant. We recommended recognising that there are certain groups of young people who face more considerable barriers and challenges to gaining and sustaining paid work- young single mothers; disabled young people and young care leavers for example.
