One CIC

Welcome - custom

Welcome

Hi,

Thanks so much for considering a career with One CIC!

Established in 2020, at the height of the Covid crisis, One CIC was created to make a positive impact on people who are affected by homelessness. We believe “We Are All One” and we have One simple yet dynamic plan. Our mission is to work shoulder to shoulder with people who are homeless to develop a social enterprise, delivering high-quality accommodation, support, training and employment. We anticipate being a positive disruptor in the homelessness sector, challenging norms to achieve the highest standard of housing and support whilst enabling and empowering people to thrive independently.

Our sustainable business model includes working across the community to deliver building and maintenance work, encouraging community gardens, developing a high street coffee chain – One Cup, as well as creating community hubs in each area for training, advice and support. Our Hubs will be a hive of activity and we will offer these spaces to community groups and partner agencies to run events, workshops and activities for our tenants and the local communities. The hubs with give our tenants the opportunity to not only integrate with their community but to contribute to it. Our five-year business plan is that each One CIC will support the majority of its tenants into employment either within the One CIC Group or trained and qualified to work with local employers. One CIC has a modern empowering approach to social entrepreneurialism.

One CIC is a UK based not-for-profit Community Interest Company working in partnership with homeless people to provide them with high-quality accommodation and the specific and dedicated support that they need.

With an estimated 320,000 homeless people in the UK, the government have put an emphasis on eradicating homelessness and it is therefore a key priority on their agenda. Statistics have identified that homeless hostel success rates are low as the majority of people moving on from this type of accommodation are moving into substandard homes, and tenancies are failing. This has a knock on effect of increasing applications to local councils for homelessness assessment and housing. One CIC was created to answer the immediate homelessness crisis in the UK, as well as help to prepare for the impact the Coronavirus pandemic will continue to have on homelessness and unemployment over the next few years.

All the best,

Tracey Bovingdon

CEO, One CIC
