OAPA was born.
OAPA aims to act as the conduit to help those disadvantaged and struggling to get into work or finding housing. Whilst our initial focus was helping the homeless and those sleeping rough including those having to “sofa hop”, we then decided to also look to work with veterans and ex-offenders.
In time the project may extend to those with other vulnerabilities but who with the right support can work within the hospitality industry.
A story worth telling.
Over recent years there has been a significant increase in people becoming homeless and sleeping rough, it seemed only sensible to look to resolve both problems through one over- arching approach, whilst reducing the ever-increasing strain on government funding required to support those who find themselves in such extreme and vulnerable circumstances.
It is important to stress that OAPA is not a recruitment agency and focuses solely on helping those on the project find work.
