The Scottish Government wants to get people’s views on the Job Grant, a new benefit which will be delivered by Social Security Scotland to support young people moving back into employment.

The grant will be paid to 16-24 year olds (up to 26 years old for those leaving care) who have been out of paid employment and who have been getting a qualifying benefit. The Scottish Government wants your views on questions like, who should get the Job Grant and how it should be paid.  The closing date for this Consultation is 9th April 2019.
