A PATHWAY TO A CAREER AND A BRIGHTER FUTURE.
ONLY A PAVEMENT AWAY is a charity founded by representatives from the hospitality industry who believe that everyone deserves the chance to find and forge a career.
Our aim is to act as an effective conduit between forward-thinking hospitality employers and charities working with people facing homelessness, prison leavers and veterans who struggling to get into work, overcome hurdles by finding jobs within the hospitality, pub and restaurant industry. Our industry is an exciting one, built on people.
Only A Pavement Away will help those who are facing homelessness and are therefore struggling to get into work by:
- Offering career opportunities within the hospitality industry
- Facilitating training and development programmes, creating capability for work
- Offering financial support to overcome the barriers to employment including support with rent and other costs which may hinder stability
Outside of the moral benefits, the project is underpinned by a strong commercial and financial benefit to the hospitality, pub & restaurant industry whilst reducing the ever-increasing strain on government funding required for those who find themselves in such extreme and vulnerable circumstances.
The funds raised by ONLY A PAVEMENT AWAY will be used to support those returning to work, supplement the resources required by the charities/associations to manage the project and promote the jobs available in the hospitality sector.
