Remploy deliver the Fair Start Scotland program across Perth & Kinross. Fair Start Scotland is an employment service which aims to deliver a flexible, tailored, personal approach, to help unemployed people find real jobs and to keep them.

Remploy is contracted to deliver the Fair Start Scotland service on behalf of the Scottish Government in Tayside (Dundee, Angus and Perth & Kinross) and also Lanarkshire (North & South). Through the delivery of the Fair Start Scotland Service, the Scottish Government is looking to support a minimum of 38,000 participants.

Fair Start Scotland (FSS) tackles barriers to work by linking up with health and social care providers and other local services aimed at supporting people through these barriers to get into sustainable work. FSS offers more intensive, tailored support than can be provided by the standard Jobcentre Plus offer, or through other available services and provision.

Participation on FSS is voluntary, therefore claimants cannot be sanctioned for non-attendance, failure to engage or if they leave the programme early. Referrals can come from anywhere providing someone is currently not in employment and not in full time education (12 hours or less is ok). We are able to work with people for up to 12-18 months to support with any barriers, development or training they need to get in to the right kind of work.

We have access to multiple employers in multiple sectors who are always looking for us to provide the type of people they are looking for to fulfil their vacancies. We then give 12 months of in work support to ensure the sustainability of someone’s role. We see this part making a real difference to people starting a career and not just a job.

If you or someone you know would like to get our support, then drop us a message today.
