Only A Pavement Away
ONLY A PAVEMENT AWAY is a charity founded by representatives from the hospitality industry who believe that everyone deserves the chance to find and forge a career.
The organisation's aim is to connect forward-thinking hospitality employers with charities working with people facing homelessness, prison leavers and veterans and, who are struggling to get into work, into new careers within the hospitality, pub and restaurant industry. Our industry is an exciting one, built on people.
Only A Pavement Away helps people who are facing or are at risk of homelessness by:
Offering career opportunities within the hospitality industry
Facilitating training and development programmes, creating capability for work
Offering financial support to overcome the barriers to employment including support with rent and other costs which may hinder stability
The project is underpinned by a strong commercial and financial benefit to the hospitality, pub and restaurant industry whilst reducing the ever-increasing strain on government funding required for those who find themselves in such extreme and vulnerable circumstances.
