The aim of the Trust is to “support young people whose journey to work can be challenging due to barriers relating to their financial circumstances, lack of awareness of opportunities in the industry, low self-esteem, gender or ethnicity.”
We at the Trust know that the projects we run can change lives for the people we work with, both beneficiaries and supporters.
We have collected the stories of some of the people we have worked with for you to read and understand what a difference, together, we can make.
The Trust met Craig, Ashley and Daniel in 2010, and all secured apprenticeships through the Trust. They are all still in their paid positions and doing really well. Find out more about their stories.
The Trust was invited to meet with ‘Paul’ by Kent Youth Offending Team as he had expressed an interest in taking part in a construction apprenticeship.
Danny had left college at 17 having studied Building Service Engineering. He wanted to do an apprenticeship but was struggling to find any opportunities.
