Aspiro is a not for profit social enterprise, providing end to end employment support for adults who are disadvantaged in accessing work or learning opportunities.
We also run the ZERO Project which recycles and upcycles business waste in Leicester City Centre and delivers a cost effective service and provides work & learning opportunities for Aspiro customers disadvantaged in finding employment.
We provide advice and support for users of mental health services jointly with Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust - this is called the Mental Health Employment Service.
Our new Careers Education Service in the Hinckley and Bosworth area for young people aged 16-24 who are not in Education, Employment or Training, is partly funded by the European Social Fund with the Skills Funding Agency, which we run in partnership with Business2Business.
We deliver Better Lives courses for West Leicestershire NHS Clinical Commissioning Group to help local residents with mental health difficulties improve their physical health, mental wellbeing and increase their use of primary care services in Hinckley, Coalville and Loughborough.
We also have experience of providing specialised work and learning support to recovering substance users, ex-offenders, forensic mental health patients, as well as adults with a learning disability.
We believe every adult has the right to work.
Aspiro, based in Leicester city, provides a range of services across Leicestershire and Rutland and has helped almost 1000 local people. This is our #1000CustomerChallenge.
More than one third of Mental Health Employment Service customers find paid jobs and another (almost) half access volunteering, work placements, or learning opportunities, with 7 out of 10 still in the same employment at 6 months. Over 650 Aspiro customers have started work or learning opportunities with our assistance.
