Kick start @ Tang Hall SMART 

This is aimed at adults who are artistic , musical, or good at woodworking, who want to start moving towards being employed, (as a voluntary or paid worker), but who are struggling with multiple barriers such as homelessness, poor mental health, addiction etc.  Kick Start @ Tang Hall SMART offers a very individualized approach, with one-to-one support and coaching, to help people progress to a level where they could then consider training alongside others. 

Having secured funding from Igen to run the Kick Start programme for 3 years, Tang Hall SMART began delivery on January 8th 2020. 

This course is still running, despite the challenges imposed by Covid-19, but has had to change how it is delivered. Initially we changed to a 100% on-line model from March 2020, but from September 2020, will be slowly bringing back some limited on-site sessions. 

So who can apply? We give priority to people who are homeless, or who have experienced homelessness and the multiple entrenched difficulties that can come with this. People living in any of the homeless hostels or flats run by organisations such as Changing Lives or Restore, are welcome to self refer or ask a staff member to do so.  We will also accept applications from people struggling with a combination of addiction and mental health problems. Anyone on the books of Changing Lives is welcome to refer to us. 

We are currently full, but we welcome applicants who wish to be considered for a place in the future.
