What is Aspire?
Aspire Oxford tackles homelessness and disadvantage through excellence in enterprise and employment. We manage 5 Social Enterprises, offering a range of products and services to businesses and private individuals across the County. These include gardening and grounds maintenance, recycling, delivery and recruitment services. We also have our own business growing flowers, fruit and vegetables for local retailers and homes.
It’s good for the environment and it’s good for us all! Aspire’s recycling business is thriving, taking your unwanted clothes, books, bric-à-brac… everything really. We resell items on our Market Stall and ship other collections to Third World Countries. All the revenue we make goes right back into helping people overcome disadvantage and get into work.
Where to buy
Aspire Oxford sells goods every week at Gloucester Green Market, in the centre of Oxford. The Stall is open from 8am on every other Wednesday. For opening times and dates please call 01865 204450.
