A rep­re­sen­ta­tive from Ring­ways Mo­tor Group, a mem­ber of the Busi­ness Build­ing Fu­tures Pro­gramme, will dis­cuss the busi­ness ben­e­fits and in­tri­ca­cies of em­ploy­ing a pre­vi­ously home­less in­di­vid­ual.

Andy Howarth, chief ex­ec­u­tive of The Howarth Foun­da­tion, said: “I would en­cour­age busi­nesses and in­di­vid­u­als to come along and find out how their sup­port can help those who have over­come liv­ing on the streets and are ready to get them­selves back on track and into em­ploy­ment to make a pos­i­tive con­tri­bu­tion to so­ci­ety.

“We al­ready have a fan­tas­tic net­work of more than 20 lo­cal busi­nesses on board and with even more sup­port we can ex­tend our reach to help more peo­ple who have ex­pe­ri­enced home­less­ness take that first step back into em­ploy­ment.”
