Sheffield HCP Experience on the Kickstart Scheme

This case study outlines the work and achievements of the Sheffield HCP participating in the Government’s Kickstart Scheme where funding was provided to offer a 6-month placement in one of our partners to six young people ‘Kickstarters’, aged between 16–24 years of age, who were currently in receipt of Universal Credit at the time. The scheme aimed at preventing young people who were currently unemployed from facing long-term unemployment.
