Our aim is to provide a unique service that fulfils a genuine business need and use it as an opportunity to fund getting more residents into employment
Our three main aims:
- To help clients manage sickness, leave and absence, and provide continuity in the event of a major service disruption.
- To encourage the sector to do more to link the procurement of services to access to training and employment opportunities for residents
- To create more opportunities for residents that cannot access other Community Development and Training (CD&T) schemes
- To provide a service that fulfills a business need and use the profit to help people, like Carly, realise their full potential.
- The founders of Learn to Hope are all employed within the Social Housing sector and want to demonstrate what could be achieved as a sector if we utilised our immense purchasing power to encourage our suppliers to help deliver our commitment to supporting people.
Our Community Development and Training goals:
Most traditional Community Development and Training programmes are open to anyone but cannot be accessed by everyone.
We aim to create a resident training and employment model that:
- Is more accessible, because we train people at home.
- Is more flexible, because we can train people during the evening and at weekends (i.e. around the clock).
- Can create employment as well as training opportunities.
We want to take the employment and training into the homes of single parents, parents with young children, carers, disabled residents and people who live in isolated communities. And support residents whilst they make the transition to full employment in gradual stages.
We also seek to work in partnership with recruitment agencies.
Every service we deliver directly benefits two or more residents
