At Charityworks, we believe in the potential of young people to play a significant role in our national recovery from the COVID19 pandemic and we know that as a sector we can make a significant contribution to the challenges we face by supporting the talent, energy and learning that young people can bring. That is why we want to ensure as much of the government Kickstart scheme funding as possible is made available for charities and non-profit organisations.
What is Kickstart?
Kickstart provides government funding for 6 month placements for young people aged 16-24 who are on universal credit and at risk of long-term youth unemployment. The placements must be new roles not current vacancies, 25 hours per week, at least national minimum wage (or living wage dependent on the trainees age) and provide training to increase future employment prospects, an additional £1500 is provided to cover training costs.
How does Charityworks help?
Charityworks wants to ensure as much as possible of this £2bn fund is targeted into the UK non-profit sector and is a registered gateway which helps charity and non-profit organisations benefit from the funding – helping reduce bureaucracy and running a wrap-around 6 month learning and leadership development programme tailored to the needs of the trainees on your behalf using our 10 years of experience.
