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.
