Our mission is to bring meaningful and flexible employment to people experiencing homelessness, and in doing so giving them the confidence and skills they need to take steps away from temporary accommodation.
Our founder, Alice, was inspired to start Pivot after her involvement with Year Here and working with Fat Macy's in a local homeless shelter. She witnessed the barriers faced by people in hostels, such as limited work opportunities and access issues. Alice saw an opportunity to address these challenges while shifting the narrative around homelessness.
We offer paid employment, coaching and skills to individuals who lack access to such opportunities. Through our jewellery making programmes, we provide income and skills training, enabling our participants to take steps towards independence from temporary accommodation.
Since our launch in 2020, we've been dedicated to creating beautiful pieces of jewellery that not only tell a story but also make a positive impact. From our recycled acetate earrings to our hand-finished bangles, every item is crafted with love and purpose.
