    The Scottish Government Budget announced on 19 December 2023 included multiple key indicators for the future of employability and employability services in Scotland. 

    Notable developments include:

    • Investment of up to £90 million in devolved employability services in 2024‑25 with a commitment to future multi‑year funding to provide much needed certainty to the sector and for the people accessing our services, with services targeted at supporting those facing structural barriers to entering employment – including parents, disabled people, those with long term health conditions and ethnic minorities.
    • Commitments to funding fair work and real living wage salaries for adult and children’s social care
    • A review of grant models in operation, guided by commitments to Fairer Funding for the Third Sector
    • Employability budget cut by £21 million from £133.6m in 2023/24 to £102.8m in 2024/25
