Restart Scheme

What is the Restart Scheme?

The Restart Scheme, delivered on behalf of the Department for Work and Pensions, provides tailored support for individuals who are claiming Universal Credit and have been in the IWSR (Intensive Work Search Regime) for 9 months. Our support ensures that individuals are ready for the right job at the right time.

Karen Palmer

Restart Manager

Welcome to the Restart Scheme in Aylesbury Vale! As the Delivery Manager here in Aylesbury I wanted to take some time to introduce myself and share the vision and values that guide our work. 

I have had the pleasure and privilege of leading the Restart Team since July 2022 bringing over 15 years experience of working in the sector as a lead in driving performance and aiming to ‘change people’s lives through employment and skills.’ 

All our knowledgeable and experienced Employment Coaches are well equipped in empowering, motivating and supporting our participants on the Restart Scheme with a plethora of resources available to support our participants in their lives, skills, health and work to not only re-enter employment but also to sustain that employment.

Even after many years of working in the employment sector, the highlight of this job is seeing people’s personal life situations change in many ways and ultimately by achieving their individual goals in becoming more socially and economically active. 


Are you an employer?

With 19 years of experience collaborating with employers, TCHC provides a variety of courses to enhance your staff’s skills. We offer opportunities for you to connect with a pool of job-ready candidates for free.

What our Participants think...
