On Thursday 14 October 2021, the third Fair Start Scotland Annual Report was published. The report shows how our national devolved employment support service has progressed throughout 2021-21, highlighting how quickly continuity support was arranged for participants, new referral routes were created and virtual engagement opportunities were made to deliver support successfully to participants.
