History

 Calderdale SmartMove is a registered charity and company limited by guarantee.

We were established in 1998 and are one independent organisation supporting homeless and vulnerably housed people. Our office is in central Halifax and we work through the whole of Calderdale.

We have a proven track record of finding private rented and social housing accommodation and supporting local disadvantaged people through difficult times.

More recently the government commissioned King's College London to undertake research to overcome social exclusions and bring people in from the margins of society. As a result, our work was shadowed for two years, because of our track record in assisting people towards independence, with the findings published in the book 'Social Policy, Social Care'. We share significant pride in the fact that our organisation (along with two others, in London and Cumbria) was chosen due to the positive outcomes we achieved.Our 'under one roof' approach, providing accommodation, support, education and work clubs plus many other services, has been integral to our continued sustainability.
