List of Kickstart gateways in England, Scotland and Wales who can apply for a Kickstart Scheme grant on behalf of a group of employers.

Contents

How someone can help

 

If you're creating fewer than 30 job placements, a Kickstart gateway can act on your behalf and apply for a Kickstart Scheme grant for you.

 

They will:

  • gather information from you about the job placements you'd like to offer
  • use this information to submit an online application on behalf of a group of employers
  • pass on the relevant payments made by DWP to you (for example the young person's salary)

They may also:

  • share their expertise with you to help you onboard and train young people employed through the scheme, for example supporting those with particular disadvantages or working in certain sectors
  • provide employability support directly to young people employed through the scheme

If you're creating more than 30 job placements

 

You can apply directly by submitting an online application yourself.

 

How to find someone to apply on your behalf

 

Use this list to find a Kickstart gateway that can support you in applying for a Kickstart Scheme grant.

 

You may be looking for support with different things, for example in a specific area or sector. You can contact more than one organisation to see which one can best support your needs.

 

These organisations have shared their contact information with the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP). The list will be continually updated.

 

DWP have checked these organisations using the Cabinet Office Spotlight Tool. Partnering with one of these organisations does not guarantee that you will get Kickstart Scheme funding.

 

If you need more help

 

Email your local or national Kickstart Scheme contact if you need more help with the Kickstart Scheme process.

 

If you're a Kickstart gateway

  • you'd like to help employers apply for the Kickstart Scheme and would like your details published on this list
  • you want your details removed from this list

We've had a high interest from potential Kickstart gateways so your organisation's name may not appear immediately.
