SMART Advice

Posted on

We understand how tough it can be when you have money worries, especially if you are struggling to find a job. That’s why Susan, who was previously part of our Welfare Advice Team, is now working on a new SMART Tenant Project:

“I am really excited about helping tenants in different ways – from sorting out money problems to finding employment.”

Sometimes it may be as simple as re-writing a CV, helping with a job application and practicing interview techniques.

“We may also be able to arrange for training that could help residents back into work and support with childcare during the training.”

The SMART project is for new tenants who are unemployed and have the right to live and work in the U.K.

If you are not a new tenant and you think you could benefit from this kind of support, Susan is still very keen to hear from you:

“Please contact me so we can talk about other ways of helping you.”

Susan is working on this project with an organisation called the Penwith Community Development Trust and it is funded by the European Social Fund.
