About Radical Recruit
Lindsay Healy, Founding Partner of Aria Grace Law said, “We were lucky enough to be in a position where we could offer employment to a Radical who really needed it, and I am delighted to say that both they and we are benefitting – perhaps us more so because not only did we get a great skillset but also someone who provides alternative ideas and perspectives to a corporate law firm.
“In general, by securing permanent work, vulnerable people can start to rebuild their lives. This includes being able to afford safe and permanent accommodation.”
“Radical Futures is a really unique opportunity for business leaders to take part in an innovative project which tackles homelessness at its root“
Lindsay Healy, Aria Grace Law
“We will continue to work with Radical Recruit and would strongly urge other employers to consider joining their recruitment revolution – to us, it makes business sense and for society, it is the right thing to do.”
“Funding for the Radical Futures won’t carry on forever,” concludes Emma. “Radical Recruit will be launching a crowdfunding campaign to sustain the work we are doing as well being able to reach even more people.”
