The 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. 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 the Scottish Government.
Why We Are Consulting
The purpose of this consultation is to seek views on the key eligibility criteria and our proposal for the format of the payment for the Job Grant. We also want to identify any unintended consequences of our proposals.
