Restart Scheme


We deliver the Restart Scheme across the North of England on behalf of the Department for Work and Pensions. It is a government Scheme providing up to 12 months of enhanced support to help you find a job in your local area. It's designed to break down any employment barriers that could be holding you back from finding work.

We deliver the Restart Scheme in:

South Yorkshire on behalf of Maximus UK

North-West on behalf of G4S

Greater Manchester on behalf of Ingeus


We recognise that your journey and your needs are unique, and to reflect that, we tailor the Restart Scheme to you as an individual. The aim is to help you find secure and sustainable work as a soon as possible.

We will support you to take steps to make a positive change in your life and reach your goals. Our expert team of Advisors and Employment Specialists are here to help build your confidence, wellbeing, skills and motivation so that you're ready to move forward and succeed.


You will be provided with a dedicated Restart Scheme Advisor, who will support you to access the wide range of Restart Scheme services and support available. You'll be in touch with your Restart Scheme Advisor at least every two weeks by your preferred method of contact, with face to face in-person meetings every 4 weeks.

Collaboration & Communication

Working together with your Restart Scheme Advisor is the best way to make Restart Scheme work for you. Open, honest communication will enable us to provide the right support and best opportunities for you. Together we will design and agree the best support for you, giving you choice and control.
