THINK Hospitality Group founder and partner, James Hacon has today hosted the Only A Pavement Away 3rd Annual Conference. The event included an update on the charity's new 5 year strategy and how businesses and supporters can support in getting 1000 people into work by 2024 as well as reviewing charity successes to date and looking ahead to the events and campaigns planned for 2023.
Only A Pavement Away’s purpose is to provide pathways out of homelessness and crime into purposeful employment within the hospitality industry. Over the next six years it is estimated that there will be around 1.3million vacancies in the hospitality industry. At the same time, the number of people who are facing or are at risk of becoming homeless, is rising with an estimated 66,000 more people experiencing homelessness.
The event was attended by over 170 delegates from employer and charity partners, sponsors, supporters and guests from across hospitality.
THINK Hospitality was a founding supporter of the charity.
