Support Our Christmas Appeal - Gift of Hope

Please donate to Aspire and Oxford Homeless Pathway's Joint Christmas Appeal, Gift of Hope 2016, and find out the latest updates on our appeal Facebook page. To see the impact of our work and the difference is can make to someone at Christmas experiencing homelessness, read our Aspire Trainees' blog here and watch our powerful film documentary about the reality of homelessness in Oxford.

With your support, we can continue to make an outstanding impact across Oxfordshire. Last year we worked with 160 brave, determined and inspiring trainees. 24% of these were supported into paid employment, 97.5% of trainees with an offending history did not reoffend, and 93% of our trainees maintained their recovery from addiction. We are proud of the difference that our work makes and with your support we can achieve even more.

Hannah’s story

“It was pretty daunting going along to Aspire at first, as I had been through a lot and didn’t know anyone. But I went out with four people in a gardening crew and they were so kind and welcoming, I ended up staying with Aspire for 18 months. Aspire arranged work experience for me at Helen & Douglas House, and they also helped me get an interview at Vodafone and I am now working 12 hours a week in their store in Oxford, which fits well with my studies. I had always intended to study at university, but my problems stopped that, so to be at uni is great. Life is good – and this is mainly due to Aspire. They have helped me every step of the way.”
