Aspire in Manchester Social Enterprise Ltd - Textile Recycling Project
The project provides paid transitional employment and training together with one-to-one personal and job search support, to enhance the employability of homeless and ex homeless (including refugees) and ex offenders, through the operation of a Textile Recycling Collection Service. In addition the Project work with beneficiaries to empower them to develop new recycled textile products which then form the basis of wider employment, self employment and social enterprise opportunities for themselves at the end of the Project. The project also works with beneficiaries to empower them to take on a staff role to run the Textile Recycling Service themselves at the end of the Project. The Project therefore enhances beneficiary employability by both assisting them into existing employment opportunities, as well as empowering them to create their own new employment opportunities.
