It was fantastic to hear of the success of the Kickstart scheme In Bridgend and Porthcawl. The scheme has been used to provide jobs for young people in the constituency. Across Wales there are 5,000 Kickstart jobs, tackling youth unemployment in Bridgend and across the country.
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.
