Find a Kickstart gateway to apply for a Kickstart Scheme grant on your behalf

Find a Kickstart gateway in England, Scotland or Wales who is already working with the Kickstart Scheme.

What is a Kickstart gateway?

A Kickstart gateway can be any type of organisation, such as a local authority, charity or trade body.

They will act as an intermediary and apply for funding on your behalf.

They may also provide employability support to the young people in the job on your behalf.

Kickstart gateways will:

  • gather information about the jobs you’d like to offer
  • share this information with DWP on your behalf
  • pay the funding to you (for example the young person’s salary)
