Restart Scheme

The Restart Scheme


We are delighted to have been selected by the Department for Work and Pensions to deliver the Restart Scheme in Wales and West Central England, supporting eligible individuals* to find jobs in their local area. 

We comprehensively assess Participants’ needs and motivations using our evidence-based employability model and work with our network of trusted providers and partners to help break down barriers to work. 

Continuous improvement is at the heart of what we do and through the development of our Centre of Excellence, we use data and research to create evidence-based practice which drives positive outcomes.  


Tell us your recruitment needs

Our dedicated Employer Engagement Team helps employers to place the right people into the right roles, developing and supporting them on the way. Take advantage of our funded service to save you time and resource when filling vacancies so your workforce remains competitive, and you can focus on growing your business.  

As well as providing ‘Meet the Employer’ days, we work with our partners and stakeholders to make sure candidates have the relevant skills you require before assessing them and putting them through the recruitment process. Our help doesn’t just stop there, we also provide ongoing support to new starters and where appropriate we can work with our partners to provide training for existing staff members too.

Let's work together to challenge unemployment

Our stakeholders are an integral part of the solution to help Participants into employment, so we actively work with local wrap around services to get our Participants ready for work in today’s World. Our partners are invited to local engagement meetings to share priority activities and promote localism and service integration, ensuring a well-rounded service for our Participants.  

If you represent a public or private sector organisation in Wales or West Central England, work with us to drive access to your service and strengthen the local community and economy.

How we work with Participants

We recognise that every Participant’s journey back into work is different, so our approach is tailored to meet the needs of each individual, enabling self-starters with a history of work to flourish more quickly, whilst also creating a viable pathway for those with additional support requirements.
