We provide tailored support for individuals who have been claiming universal credit or job seekers allowance for more than 9 months.

The Restart Scheme is part of the Government’s ‘Plan for Jobs’ which aims to help people in England and Wales back into employment. People who have been claiming Universal Credit will have access to enhanced support to find work, completely FREE of charge.

Referrals will be made over a three-year period and the Restart Scheme offers up to one year of support to help participants to look for work, prepare for interview, and provide support once in employment.

Working with local employers, local government and support services based in the area, Workpays has created a service that gives Restart Scheme participants extra help and tailored support to remove any barriers to work and find sustainable employment.
