Job Start Payment: high level statistics to 31 March 2021

Job Start Payment is a new payment to help young people in Scotland with the costs associated with the transition into employment, after a period of time out of paid work.
As this publication reports on applications and decisions to the end of March 2021, it covers the time period when the Covid-19 pandemic was present in Scotland.
Social Security Scotland implemented some service changes in response to the Covid-19 pandemic but has continued to process applications and make payments.
