Restart Scheme providers are required to maintain strong working relationships with key stakeholders including both local and national employers. This ensures that the Restart Scheme’s offer is complementary to local efforts to help long-term unemployed claimants progress into sustained employment. All Restart Scheme providers are contracted to have employer engagement teams as part of their business model.
