The Newstart Employer Grant is available to Businesses and Organisations* to support the creation of employment opportunities to participants on the Newstart project. The opportunity must have some form of training/learning attached to it, including the provision of time (as part of their contracted hours) to receive employability support by Newstart staff. The grant is claimed against the salary costs of the participant and related support costs incurred by the employer.

Newstart staff will identify and shortlist suitable participants for the employer to select from. The employer will interview participants and employ an agreed number of Newstart participants. The employer will provide feedback to Newstart staff related to unsuccessful participants.

The grant award is in two parts:

Salary costs: reimbursement of salary costs for up to 3 months for 30 hours per week at participant minimum wage.

Support costs: maximum of £3,000 for up to a 3-month period

If you would like to access the Newstart Employer Grant, please email your enquiry to crf@groundworknottingham.org.uk  and a member of the Newstart team will be in touch to discuss the process.

*Eligible applicants will be employers that have a valid working address within the following local authority areas: Nottingham City, Mansfield, Bassetlaw or Newark and Sherwood.
