Aspire was established in 2002 and became employee owned in June 2019. 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, but profits realised by the company. An aim is to make a better life for employees, their families and our communities.
We recognise that people who are referred for support services and their families often feel socially isolated. Their sense of exclusion from their local community, social activities, advice services, finance/welfare benefits, and employment/training mixed with a combination of issues such as health problems, frailty, loneliness, addictions, and poverty can contribute to a lack of self-worth and sense of hopelessness.
We recognise that each person has their own unique relationships, experiences, strengths, needs, and future aspirations. All our efforts are focused on ensuring each person has the best opportunities to develop more confidence and skills to have as fulfilling a life as possible, and where they and their families are making decisions to support their rightful place alongside fellow citizens. We pursue this within an environment of hope and with a positive expectation of people realising their potential
Our focus is on personal development and we support:
- Individuals who are homeless.
- Older people.
- Young people.
- Children and families.
- People with a wide range of disabilities.
