Floral Court Festival: Petersham Platform - A conversation with Only a Pavement, Crisis and Novus

25th May 2019 , Covent Garden

Hosted by our Head of HR, Katarina Mizakova, join our conversation with three charities who we have recently began working with.

About
Building the future via socially inclusive recruitment.

ONLY A PAVEMENT AWAY: Petersham Nurseries recently started their journey with Only A Pavement Away charity which opened our eyes to a problem that is visible but other not seen. Around 4700 people sleep on the streets every night. London and south east account for almost a quarter of all rough sleepers with 51% of those recorded in London reporting experience of the armed forces, care or prison. The average life expectancy of a rough sleeper is 46 years old. Between now and 2024, the hospitality industry will need to recruit around 1.3 million employees and around 300.00 of these roles will be new positions. We believe that it is our responsibility to include those that need our support into our recruitment and development strategy. We would like to invite our hospitality friends to learn about this amazing project.

A charity founded by representatives from the hospitality industry. We act as a conduit to help those people struggling to get into work overcome hurdles by finding jobs within the hospitality, pub and restaurant industry. Our initial focus was on helping the Homeless and those sleeping rough including those having to “sofa hop” we now work with ex-service personnel, ex-offenders and those with learning difficulties. Our aim is to act as a conduit to employment whilst negating the need for people to face an existence of living on the streets. We believe that everyone deserves an opportunity and a chance to forge a career. Our industry is an exciting one built on people.

CRISIS:
Crisis is the UK national charity for homeless people. The charity offers year-round education, employment, housing and well-being services from centres in London, Newcastle, Oxford, Edinburgh and Merseyside, called Crisis Skylight Centres.

NOVUS: Foundation for change
For more than two decades, we have been delivering innovative high quality education, training and employment opportunities to adults and young people in UK prisons.
