The Restart Scheme

PeoplePlus delivers the Department for Work and Pension’s Restart Scheme on behalf of Reed in Partnership, in Kent, to help long-term unemployed people to start working.

We provide a range of employment support including; skills training, job and interview preparation, financial advice and health and wellbeing support.

The service forms part of the government’s Plan for Jobs, which is helping millions of people across the country – many of whom have had their employment status impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. The Restart Scheme aims to break down barriers which could be holding you back from finding work.
