Kickstart Scheme Success in Wales

The Kickstart scheme has been very well received in Bridgend and Porthcawl.

I have met with employers across the area, including Parkdean, which operates Trecco Bay, to discuss how it can be used to provide jobs for young people in Bridgend and Porthcawl. I am pleased to hear that they are delighted with the success of the scheme to date.

I raised this with the Minister for Welfare Delivery at the Department for Work and Pensions to ask how effective the Kickstart scheme has been at tackling youth unemployment in Wales.

Across Wales, there are 5,000 Kickstart jobs. I will continue to support this fantastic scheme to help get as many young people in employment as possible.
