The Scottish Government has confirmed that its Job Start Payment is open for applications from today.
The one-off payment of £250 (£400 if the person has a child) is available to 16 to 24-year-olds (and up to age 25 for care leavers) who have been unemployed for six months, and is designed to help with the costs of starting a new job.
