Fair Start Scotland

Fair Start Scotland is the Scottish Government’s devolved employability support service. It aims to help people further from the labour market to move into and sustain employment.

Participation is voluntary and the Scottish Government has contracted specialist employability providers to deliver the service. Payments to providers are performance related and depend on how successful they are at supporting participants to find sustained employment.

Fair Start Scotland was recently extended to continue to take new participants through 2021-22 and 2022-23.
