Kickstart Scheme Closure

Kickstart Scheme applications closed at midday on 17 December 2021.

Employers who applied for a Kickstart Scheme grant before midday on 17 December 2021 should have received a decision on their application. It is recommended that employers contact their local or national Kickstart Scheme contact if they have not received a decision.

Those with successful applications should have signed and returned their grant agreement by 7 January 2022, submitted their vacancies to the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) by 31 January 2022 and started the young person in the job on or before 31 March 2022.

To help DWP process the funding, they ask that employers tell them as soon as possible or by 30 April 2022 that the young person has started their job.

Employers will get funding for 6 months once the young person has started their job.
