We know that a job can change people’s lives and the lives of those around them. And we believe that everyone should have that opportunity.
We employ more than 100 people who face barriers to mainstream employment including people living with disability, the long term unemployed and older workers.
We know our solution is working because we have been changing people’s lives through employment since 1969. Hoxton started when a small group of people banded together and worked long and hard to raise funds and lobby the local council – and they created a place where people living with disability could find meaningful employment in a caring, supportive environment. From these beginnings we have grown and expanded our employment solutions to include people who face other barriers to mainstream employment.
we are FUN, we are OPEN, we are SUPPORTIVE, we are RESPECTFUL and we take OWNERSHIP
Our aim is to be around for a long time so that many more people have the opportunity to transform their lives – not just by having a job, but also through the many far-reaching social, economic and health impacts having that job brings.
Just for now, though, we want to raise enough funds to purchase a new forklift for our warehouse. A new forklift will help to keep the receiving and dispatch of work running efficiently – and the more efficient we are, the closer we get to our long term goal.
