A Fair Start for North East job seekers

From today (3 April 2018), Momentum is delivering Fair Start Scotland; Scotland’s new devolved employment support service, providing support for unemployed people in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire who want help to find and sustain work.. Momentum has been a strong presence in the North East for 20 years supporting the people of Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire through a variety of services including Work First Scotland as well as a number of brain injury and mental health services and support groups.

On the launch of Fair Start Scotland, Steve Black Head of Operations at Momentum said;
“We are delighted to launch the Fair Start Scotland service for the people of Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire. Fair Start Scotland will enable Momentum to continue to build on the positive work and strong relationships that we currently have in the North East whilst providing a high quality service that delivers sustained job, treating people with fairness, dignity and respect.”

Fair Start Scotland is the Scottish Government’s new employment support service which takes a new approach to employment support. Fair Start Scotland:

• Provides tailored, flexible and person-centered support to a minimum of 38,000 people across Scotland to find work, and stay in work.
• Is distinctive as participation is voluntary. This means that people have everything to gain and nothing to lose - choosing to participate won’t affect existing benefits or be driven by fear of sanctions
