The Kickstart Charity are proud to state that we are currently working alongside Jobcentre Plus in Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Rutland to ensure, where possible, an individual who has secured employment but has a transport problem, can travel to and from their place their work. Together, we achieve this by Jobcentre Plus utilising the Flexible Support Fund (FSF) to provide funding for the individual to:
1. Attend the Compulsory Bike Training (CBT) – required by law to ensure the individual is safe to ride the moped unsupervised. The CBT is delivered by one of our partners and will be confirmed with both the client and referring member of staff prior to any training taking place.
2. Be issued with brand new safety equipment and clothing – Once the CBT has been passed the individual will be issued with the following:
Motorcycle Armoured Jacket
Pair of Motorcycle Gloves
High Visibility Vest
Each moped comes with a lock and chain or security
Unfortunately, funding may not always be available to an individual mentioned therefore, should this be the case, the Kickstart team will automatically check other funding streams that may be able to provide the individual with funding for them to either attend the Compulsory Bike Training (CBT), be issued with the relevant safety clothing & equipment or to pay for the cost of a Provisional Motorcycle Licence. Once the level of funding has been confirmed we will inform both the applicant and the referring member of staff (if applicable).
