Established in 2002 by Peter Millar, Aspire has successfully provided supports for a variety of people in their own homes and homeless services (recognised by many awards over the years). Thinking of the future, Peter was keen to create an employee owned company as employee ownership is wholly consistent with Aspire’s ethos and values which is to empower all people to live their best lives, whatever their circumstance. Whilst that approach fundamentally underpins our work with people we support it’s also highly applicable to our employees.
Aspire became employee owned in June 2019, Peter retired as CEO in February 2020. Whilst still in the very early days of employee ownership, we want to make the best of the opportunity employee ownership offers. Ensuring all staff as owners, have a real say in our future direction, who benefit directly from not only the work they carry out every day with people but profits realised by the company. To make a better life for them and their families.
