Once your application has been approved we will assess your details and may invite you to attend one of our Smart Start sessions.
Smart Start provides you with information on various initiatives designed to help you make the most of your money, and ultimately improve your life. This includes employability support to help you find work and digital support to help you make the most of life online.
The session will cover all aspects of money management including opening a bank account and help to claiming benefits. You will be shown how to set up a household budget and given advice on claiming Universal Credit if you should need it. If you need to borrow money to get set up in your new home we will put you in touch with suitable lenders to avoid paying too much interest.
