Fair Start Scotland: annual report - year 2
This report highlights the progress that our national employment support service Fair Start Scotland has made in its second year of delivery. It draws from evaluation evidence and provider and participant feedback to show the impact the service had on individuals and communities throughout 2019 to 2020.
Building on the lessons learned from Year 1 (2018-19), this report highlights the progress our national employment support service Fair Start Scotland has made in its second year of delivery (2019-20). It demonstrates how Service Providers have adopted new ways of working to support people to get the jobs they want. It outlines the impact of services on participants across Scotland and how this has progressed since the end of Year 1.
It also shows some of the ways that Fair Start Scotland is making a difference in local communities and highlights some of the challenges Service Providers and partners have experienced in supporting people towards and into work.
The report draws on a range of sources including analysis of management information, demographic and background characteristics of Year 2 participants and information from Service Providers who deliver Fair Start Scotland, including first hand experiences of the participants themselves.
Many of the findings outlined are taken from the Fair Start Scotland Evaluation Report 3 – Overview of Year 2, also published on the Scottish Government website
