Today we are announcing our partnership with Only A Pavement Way (OAPA), a recently-launched charity acting to help homeless and vulnerable people struggling to get into work overcome hurdles of finding employment.
Launched at the Houses of Parliament on 10th October, OAPA was founded by representatives from the hospitality industry. Its principal aim is to act as a conduit to help those struggling to get into work overcome hurdles by finding jobs within the hospitality, pub and restaurant industry, giving everyone the opportunity to establish meaningful careers. Initially focusing on helping the homeless to find jobs in the hospitality industry, the charity has extended its reach to ex-service personnel, ex-offenders and those with learning difficulties.
Every person who finds employment through OAPA will get 12 months unlimited, free use of Hastee Pay, giving them immediate access to their earned pay from day one to help empower them financially and reduce their financial stress as they establish themselves in their new jobs.
Additionally, to celebrate the launch of OAPA, Hastee Pay will donate 50% of all the proceeds for a period of three months from the operators and partners of OAPA who sign up to Hastee Pay before June 30th 2019.
We’re incredibly proud to support OAPA in its crucial mission helping the most vulnerable in society access their right to work and get back on their feet financially.
Immediate access to earnings will be so empowering for those coming from difficult situations who simply want to earn a living but would otherwise struggle to reach their first payday.
