Last updated: 14/04/2021

A new Job Grant from Scottish Government provides support to young people with the costs of starting work. It will be paid to 16-24-year olds who have been in receipt of a qualifying benefit. OPFS organised workshops to enable young single mothers to give feedback on their experiences of the UK social security system and their views on the new Job Grant.
