How Aspire are using the Christmas Match Campaign money
Aspire tell us they were absolutely delighted to benefit from funds raised at the 2018 Christmas Match Fund.
They will use some of the money raised to provide additional, specialist employment support and advice to rough sleepers and people affected by homelessness in Oxfordshire. They will be able to run employment advice sessions at the hub in Bonn Square on a regular basis, which will include support with Universal Credit issues and claims. They can also offer work experience on Aspire's own social enterprise businesses as well as access to a welfare fund which will provide practical support such as training, essential ID, work uniforms and much more. All of this will directly help to give vulnerable local people the specialist, holistic support they need to break the cycle of homelessness.
