Employability support services in Scotland
Scottish Government seeks offers from service providers to provide employability support services in Scotland
The Scottish Government is seeking offers from service providers to provide employability support services in Scotland. This exercise will be split into eight geographical lots. The service will be known as Fair Start Scotland.
The Scottish Government will require the service provider to deliver the services as part of the devolution of employment support under section 31 of the Scotland Act 2016. Namely, it will provide support for unemployed disabled people and people claiming reserved benefits who are at risk of long-term unemployment.
The aim is to provide a tailored, coherent range of support that can respond flexibly to the individual needs of unemployed people and their employers and make best use of resources. The programme will deliver high quality employment support to unemployed people, including those with complex issues who want to work and need help to enter and/or remain in the labour market.
