Welcome to Kickstart Support
The KickStart scheme
In July 2020, the Chancellor, Rishi Sunak, announced the Kickstart scheme. The government has budgeted a massive £2billion towards the Kickstart scheme to aid employers in their recovery from the pandemic and get young people into work. The scheme offers a chance to Kickstart your career or your company and comes at no expense to the employer. The scheme won't last for ever, do not miss out!
