Whilst our initial focus was helping people facing or experiencing homelessness including those having to “sofa hop”, we also decided to also look to work with veterans and prison leavers who were at risk of homelessness.
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 Only A Pavement Away is not a recruitment agency and focuses solely on helping those on the project find work.
