Welcome to the Restart Scheme

If you are claiming Universal Credit, the Restart Scheme is designed to help you find work. With up to 12 months support that is tailored to you as an individual, the aim of the Restart Scheme is to help you find secure and sustainable work as soon as possible.

Your Restart Scheme Advisor

You will have a dedicated Advisor who will be your single point of contact during your time on Restart Scheme. They will spend time with you to understand your circumstances, your skills and any concerns you may have. They will work with you to develop a personalised plan of action to help build your confidence, wellbeing, skills and motivation so that you’re ready to move forward and get secure employment.

You will meet regularly with your Restart Scheme Advisor to provide you with the support you need to progress. Being out of work can be a challenging time and that’s why your Restart Scheme Advisor will help you access the specialist support you need to get you back into work.
