Taught modules, one to one support
RESTART runs courses aimed at supporting homeless people, or those at risk of homelessness, throughout the year. These courses consist of eight sessions, with a one week break in the middle, and two more weeks of follow up talking groups.
They are further supported by online resources and a package of employment related video content here on our website.
The sessions and resources are aimed at imparting the knowledge frameworks and key skills that are vital to gaining and keeping employment, as well as creating the mental and physical health foundations necessary to take steps on this journey. Across the course, there are meet and greets with employers, recruiters and other organisations that can support the application process.
