The charity for the employment of the homeless, ex-offenders and vulnerable veterans into careers within the hospitality industry.
STABILITY THROUGH EMPLOYMENT
The project was inspired by Greg & Gill Mangham’s refusal to accept that all people who are homeless or rough sleepers were in these situations due to some fault of their own or through some form of addiction. Many situations are the result of circumstances beyond the individual’s control. At the same time, there was an increasing awareness that the hospitality industry needed to employ a large number of team members to meet the needs of a growing industry.
It seemed only sensible to marry the need for new team members within the hospitality industry with those who, with the right opportunity, would be able to get their lives back on track. Greg then decided to use the knowledge and contacts he’d acquired during his 40 years in the industry to find a way to help those who had not been as fortunate as others. Throughout the design of the project there was always one underpinning realisation; that none of us are ever very far away from vulnerability.
COVID RESOURCE HUB
We understand that Covid-19 has had a huge impact on the hospitality industry leading to reduced hours, capped wages, redundancy, and job insecurity. The CRH has been introduced to help hospitality workers, who have been impacted by Covid 19, navigate the resources available to them. The aim is for those facing hardship during the pandemic to access this support and act as a possible preventative measure against long term unemployment and homelessness.
Winter Warmth Campaign 2020
Winter adds to the horrors of having to sleep rough. A simple gesture can help to make things a little better. The donation of a coat, a blanket and/or a sleeping bag can help keep someone warm this winter and so this year we are delighted to be running the second Winter Warmth Campaign to help many hundreds of rough sleepers across London, Brighton & Manchester.
