About this programme



Make a Referral

Fair Start Scotland is a Scottish Government funded employability support service.  It is a voluntary service providing tailored, flexible and person-centered support to unemployed people who want help to find work and stay in work.

The service is available across the Forth Valley and is delivered locally by Clackmannanshire Works (part of Clackmannanshire Council) in partnership with Falkirk and Stirling Councils.

The Fair Start Scotland service is tailored to meet individual needs and circumstances, with a variety of interventions delivered to meet those needs and remove barriers to accessing work. We recognize that some people need support and guidance to find the right job, but others can benefit from our wider services around health and wellbeing, money advice, and skills development.

Support available

You will benefit from 12 months’ pre-employment support and  up to 12 months’ in-work support from a dedicated Key Worker who will provide:

  • One-to-one advice and guidance
  • Tailored action plan and tasks to help you achieve your goals
  • Group and one-to-one workshops
  • Money Advice and Better Off Calculations
  • Signposting and support from specialist organisations
  • Access to volunteering opportunities and work tasters
  • Help to find suitable jobs and prepare for interviews
  • Access to certificated training

Here's something you should know

Info Box

Employability programmes work a little differently from other courses, especially when it comes to eligibility. For example, someone from Glasgow wouldn't be eligible for a programme taking place in North Ayrshire, and vice versa. Check the Postcode Eligibility tab in the Things to Know section to make sure this programme is open to you.
