Engage COVID 19 Update - 17 September
Kickstart in Renfrewshire
Kickstart is the UK Government scheme providing funding to employers to create new 6-month job placements for 16 to 24-year-olds who are currently on Universal Credit and at risk of long-term unemployment.
Kickstart is coming to Renfrewshire through a partnership between Renfrewshire Council’s employability experts Invest in Renfrewshire, Renfrewshire Chamber of Commerce and Engage Renfrewshire.
Pooling our experience, we will bid for placements on behalf of Renfrewshire businesses and charities and help with skills and training support throughout the six-month placement.
Full details are outlined on the Council’s dedicated web page:
The Corporate Insolvency and Governance Act 2020
The Corporate Insolvency and Governance Act 2020 (Meetings of Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisations) (Coronavirus) Regulations 2020
These regulations extend the ‘relevant period’ set out in Schedule 14 of the Corporate Insolvency and Governance Act 2020, meaning that SCIOs can continue to hold remote members meetings until 30 December 2020.
The continuing restrictions necessitated by COVID-19 mean that a SCIOs ability to hold general or members’ meetings in person (where this is specified in the constitution) is limited. These regulations allow SCIOs to use remote methods, such as video conference or phone calls to hold meetings with their members if they need to.
The time period in the Act originally ran until 30 September 2020, this is now extended for a further 3 months to 30 December 2020.
