Employment, training and education for people affected by homelessness

Aspire have supported people affected by homelessness into employment, education and training since 2001. We are a formal part of the homeless pathway in Oxfordshire and work in close partnership with a wide range of other agencies. This means that whatever your situation may be, we can help you access the support you need to break the cycle of homelessness, for good.

Here's what we can offer:

  • A dedicated Employment and Development Worker who will support you with a plan to help you gain work experience, training, qualifications and build your confidence.
  • Work experience opportunities on Aspire's own enterprise businesses in grounds and property maintenance
  • Specialist employability support to develop your CV, digital skills and confidence in applying for jobs
  • Access to paid employment opportunities through our partnership with local employers
  • Access to Aspire's Welfare Fund which provides practical support to help you break down barriers to employment - this could include funding for training courses, driving lessons, ID or support with moving into a new home.
  • Wider support and referrals with partner agencies around finding and sustaining your housing or other issues such as debt or mental health.

If you live in Oxfordshire, are aged 18+, are unemployed, sustaining your recovery if you have experienced drug or alcohol issues in the past, and are not receiving support from other employment support services, please get in touch!
