Howarths is delighted to announce a continued partnership with Leeds Charity, Simon on The Streets
Cleckheaton Law firm Howarths People & Safety Management, who specialise in HR, Employment Law and Health & Safety, is delighted to announce a continued partnership with Leeds Charity, Simon on The Streets. Howarths will continue to provide support for the charity so that they can concentrate on doing what they do best; to better the lives of those who are homeless.
Simon on the Streets is an independent Yorkshire based charity that works with those who have unmet complex needs and cannot or will not access mainstream services. Within that group the focus is on people who are homeless and rootless, especially those with issues relating to rough sleeping. Simon on the Streets also work alongside The Howarth Foundation; a charity set up by Howarths’ Chairman, Andy Howarth which helps the homeless take ‘the next step’ back into employment.
Gordon Laing, General Manager at Simon the Streets said: “It is fantastic that reputable firms such as Howarths People & Safety Management are so willing to give back to their community. They have long been invaluable supporters of Simon on the Streets and The Howarth Foundation is a natural progression of their commitment to helping the homeless of our community. Between us, we can now help people on the whole journey from rough sleeping to employment. The prospect is very exciting for us.”
Andy Howarth, Chairman of Howarths said: “We have worked with Simon on the Street for a number of years and it was they who inspired us to set up our own charity, The Howarth Foundation as the ‘next step’ to easing the homeless back into main stream society and ultimately employment or training. The homeless are often demonised as being unworthy, lacking self –motivation or simply bone idle and happy to live on hands out but my advice to anyone with this stereotypical view is to find out a little bit more before casting final judgement and support either one or both charities and I think that you will see things very differently”
