This Government is committed to providing support to help young people move into work and avoid the scarring effects of unemployment, as we recover from the Covid pandemic.

Our Plan for Jobs includes specific interventions targeted at young people. The DWP Youth Offer and Kickstart are designed to move young people towards meaningful and sustained employment.
