Scottish Government is consulting on its key eligibility criteria and format of the Job Grant, a new benefit which will be delivered by Social Security Scotland to support young people moving back into employment, and are gathering feedback online.
The grant will be paid to 16 – 24 year olds (up to 26 years old for care leavers) who have been out of paid employment, and who have been in receipt of a qualifying benefit specified by Scottish Government.
The deadline for responses is Tuesday 9th April.
To submit your response, please visit the Scottish Government website.
