Not only do Aspire’s businesses deliver high quality services at competitive rates, they also come with social impact ‘built-in’: they create work placements and employment opportunities for local people who face barriers to securing meaningful employment. This delivers big savings for the Oxfordshire taxpayer of over £1m a year, reduces re-offending rates and homelessness, promotes social inclusion, and helps people move off benefits and into work. Our success at getting people into work, and our trainee’s low re-offending and relapse figures, are market-leading.  

Aspire employs a team of specialist support workers to help and guide Aspire Trainees into independent, sustainable and positive futures. Aspire trainees have faced and come through really tough periods in their lives. They have an inspiring resilience, tenacity and determination to change. Harnessing this kind of energy gives Aspire a committed workforce and makes it a place of change and opportunity.

Aspire’s back-to-work programme is not a ‘system’, it’s person-centric. Trainees get the opportunity to gain skills, experience and responsibility in real work environments. As they need it, they also get support with education and housing, and with finding permanent work.
