Kickstart and Young Person's Guarantee Success

Entry to the DWP Kickstart Scheme finished yesterday.

Today, Dumfries and Galloway employability and skills partners are proud to celebrate the joint work that has provided over 300 placements in private, third sector and public businesses for young people.

75 young people were given this chance of success with Dumfries and Galloway Council and the NHS.

DG Council’s Marie McKeown is shortlisted for Developing the Young Workforce Individual Champion Friday 1st April at the  DG Business Awards for her work in making this a success.  


Listen to the impact from the young people themselves.  Watch out for more at the local celebration event on the 12th May 2022
