- How Fair Start Scotland can help

Fair Start Scotland can support you if you have struggled to find a job which meets your needs.

This may be because you:

  • have a disability or additional support needs
  • have a health condition
  • have caring responsibilities
  • are a single parent
  • have been unemployed for a long time
  • are a care leaver
  • are from a minority ethnic community
  • are a refugee
  • are a person with a conviction

Fair Start Scotland's services are delivered by different providers across the country. If you choose to take part you will meet with an advisor who will give you support and guidance.

Your advisor can help you:

  • recognise your skills and create a CV
  • prepare for interviews
  • find opportunities to help you gain skills and experience
  • find jobs which meet your needs

The service also works with employers to help them understand the support and training you need to stay in work.

After you've found a job

Fair Start Scotland will continue to give support after you've found a job. This means that there is someone to help should you have any problems or questions up to 12 months after you start working.
