This website is being designed and updated by our volunteers and placements. This will help them to gain valuable experience.
Aspire-Sheffield is a vibrant and energetic social enterprise whose primary objective is to provide a stable job and a supported working environment for vulnerable or marginalised people.
Although our work was supported in part by public and private funders, aided by a dedicated team of volunteers and contributors, we recognised the need for us to become self supporting through business activities. We continue to be self funded thanks to generous donations of WEEE and our team of volunteers.
To do this we have created a range of activities that provide sustainable jobs and paid work with full or part-time wages.
If you think we can help you – we’re always seeking new clients, volunteers, contributors or ideas – please explore the site, click on to the services below, or contact us for further information.
For those who work with us* there are no barriers concerning experience, ongoing problems of homelessness, disabilities, past mistakes, learning difficulties, or other problems perceived by mainstream employers.
We operate as a fully inclusive social business – everybody who joins us is given a chance and the choice to make the effort to change their lives if they so desire.
Teams are as diverse as the work undertaken but each member is valued equally for the contribution they make.
All we ask is that each member gives it their very best shot and can respect and support other team members when and where necessary.
We operate under a simple common sense formula. Our colleagues are looked after and supported as if they were actual family members and many thrive in the positive atmosphere of mutual respect and are loudly encouraged by the supportive cheers of other team members as they go for gold!
