Mobile Classroom offers Clean Start for young Cardiff locals

The Trust recently began a Mobile Classroom project called Clean Start with MAC (Media Academy Cardiff), an organisation working with those who need help making positive life choices.

The project is funded by Hilton in the Community foundation and supported by Keepmoat Apollo and the YMCA. Trainees are learning to tile at OCN level 1, and will be tiling a shower room at MAC in Butetown, one of the more deprived areas of Cardiff. 

MAC have identified that a quarter of the young people they work with between the ages of 14 and 18 have homelessness issues, and the new shower tiled by trainees on the course will help them to keep clean and healthy reducing possible exclusion from wider society. The course trainees working with the Trust are young people who are either homeless or vulnerably housed.
