Our vision and values

Realise charity is part of we are aspire. With gift aid from Achieve Training, donations from local people and business, Realise provides essential support to over 650 people in Staffordshire each year to progress in their education and gain employment.

We also support a number of progressive initiatives to improve neighbourhoods and disadvantaged communities; help people overcome barriers to skills, support people into employment, tackle health inequalities, and assist in the development of people’s confidence, independence and self-reliance.

The essential support we provide includes the provision of work wear, toolkits, driving lessons, personal development training, creative artwork and environmental improvements.

We work together with Aspire Housing and Achieve Training to blend commercial expertise with social purpose, to revitalise communities by providing homes, training, employment and support.

Our vision for 2021 is Building Better Futures

By 2021 we will be:

– Increasing the number of people we support into work and training
– Helping local people overcome barriers, in particular, hard to reach school leavers, to become more confident, independent and self-reliant
– Enabling people to access digital services
– Improving neighbourhoods through creative artwork and environmental improvement
– A smarter, slicker, simpler business and exemplar of best practice
– Delivering approaches to improving health and wellbeing in our communities
– Working as one with Aspire Housing and PM Training to maximise opportunities for income generation and local impact
