‘Time to get prisoners back behind bars’ says employment charity

by | Mar 29, 2019 | Press Releases

The hospitality trade needs to give vulnerable people including the homeless, ex-service personnel and ex-offenders a chance to work, the Only A Pavement Away (OAPA) charity has said.

PubLove CEO Ben Stackhouse said: “There are so many benefits from getting involved with OAPA. Not only does it send out a message to your staff that they are working for a company that cares, but you get employees who, once they are settled in, are incredibly loyal. They know that you have helped create this seismic shift in their circumstances and they are incredibly grateful for that, which comes through in their work ethic.”

Companies wishing to get involved or financially support the charity through charitable donations are asked to register at https://onlyapavementaway.co.uk/get-involved/.
