Construction industry services
We partner with a wide range of construction organisations who both employ our participants directly or use the services of our Painting and Decorating Social Enterprise.
Our training programme is developed in conjunction with our partners to respond to the shortages of employees within certain sectors in the industry.
We seek to fill the skills gap to become a “go-to” for the construction industry who know they can come to us for much needed enthusiastic employees.
The support of these industry partners is key to what we do enabling us to get more people from prison into paid jobs. We regularly host events in the prisons and invite organisations into the prisons to meet and interview potential employees whilst they are still in training. We also take people in individually to tour our training centres and meet people keen for employment in the industry post release.
Our clients include large Housing Associations, Local Authorities, Construction Companies and Corporates.
Being part of what is often referred to as an exciting, vibrant Social Enterprise movement means that by working with us procurement departments are delivering the principles of the Social Value Act. In addition private individuals reach us for their own personal projects.

The support of our construction and corporate partners are the key to what we do. The fact they employ people on release or offer work to the Social Entreprise is the biggest endorsement of our work and means we can get more people from prison into paid jobs.
Working together we can all do so much more and enhance the skills we lack. Through good relationships with other organisations we can find ways to help with mentoring, housing and additional needs including drug rehabilitation. This provides us with good signposting for our participants as well as broadening what we can achieve.
We value academic and strategic relationships enormously as they advise us on measurement and the best ways to develop our offering. As well as advice we have received from the Learning Together team at Cambridge University, we have also hosted visits from Liverpool John Moore’s university amongst others.
