Returning to Work: New Directions for the Restart Scheme

Restart was introduced in 1986 by the Manpower Services Commission, during Lord Young’s term as Secretary of State for Employment. The Purpose of the scheme (which now comes under the employment service) is to reduce long-term unemployment: by providing information, individual counselling, and help with making new beginnings.
