Update for June
Major Change: Our computer shop is now closed EVERY MONDAY and will only be open to drop-in customers from 9.30am – 5pm, Tuesday to Friday. Please do not contact the computer shop with donation enquiries. If you are a public donor please see HERE
Our business / corporate recycling & WEEE waste collections are operating as normal – new customers should anticipate a waiting time of around ten working days for collections.
For the summer months, in-person drop-offs by the general public can now take place Monday to Friday during 09:00 – 17:00. Please continue to avoid lunchtimes if possible (12-1).
Aspire Community Enterprise (Sheffield) Ltd is a vibrant and energetic social enterprise specialising in computer recycling whose primary objective is to provide a stable job and a supported working environment for vulnerable or marginalised people.
Although our work was supported in part by public and private funders, aided by a dedicated team of volunteers and contributors, we recognised the need for us to become self supporting through business activities. We continue to be self sustaining thanks to generous donations of computer recycling stock and other WEEE along with the continued assistance of our amazing volunteers.
We have also developed a range of commercially viable activities that support our core costs and importantly, provide a wealth of opportunities for the people whom we support.
If you think we can help you, we are always seeking new clients, volunteers, contributors, computer donations or ideas so please explore the site, click on the services buttons, or contact us for further information.
For those who work with us * there are no barriers concerning experience, ongoing problems of homelessness, disabilities, past mistakes, learning difficulties, or other issues perceived by mainstream employers.
We operate as a fully inclusive social business and everybody who joins us is given a chance and the choice to make the effort to change their lives if they so desire.
Teams are as diverse as the work undertaken but each member is valued equally for the contribution they make.
All we ask is that each member gives it their very best shot and can respect and support other team members when and where necessary.
We operate under a simple common sense formula. Our colleagues are looked after and supported as if they were actual family members and many thrive in the positive atmosphere of mutual respect and are loudly encouraged by the supportive cheers of other team members as they go for gold!
* Potential new team members require being referred or signposted by a support organisation or referring agency.
