As part of our Be Well, Do WellTM commitment to positively impacting people’s lives, we’ve partnered with a local charity, Step by Step, to forge a meaningful and enduring relationship and provide ongoing support that makes a difference.

Step by Step: Young People’s Charity

Step by Step supports young people facing homelessness and housing insecurity by providing safe accommodation, personal development opportunities and specialised support services.

Their main site is conveniently located in Aldershot, just 4 miles from our Pelican head office in Farnborough. It has additional locations in Basingstoke, Havant, and a new development near the New Forest.

The Pelican team engage in various projects throughout the year to support their initiatives however we can – from helping to renovate their facilities to donating food to providing training support.

Career Workshop

In June, members of the Pelican Procurement team visited the Step by Step site in Aldershot to provide its young residents with valuable insights and support to boost their professional skills and pave the way for career success.

Pelican team members guided young residents in crafting CVs, interview techniques and how to optimise their LinkedIn profiles to help them with employment opportunities.

Furthermore, we have extended our support by donating surplus food, beverages, and sample products from our latest Pelican Expo.

Andrew Parsons, Head of Sales Pelican Group Purchasing, says: “It was truly rewarding to spend some time talking to the young people at Step by Step about their career aspirations. I hope the team’s advice and support can make a valuable difference in helping them find new job opportunities. Step by Step’s work for these young people is admirable, and it’s great that our team can participate in it.”

Charlie Frame, Aldershot Accommodation Manager at Step by Step says: “The young people who attended the workshops found it very useful, and it was a fantastic afternoon.”
