The organisation hosted a visit from Andy Preston, Chair of the Foundation who met with some of our apprentices at our Middlesbrough office. We are actively discussing a series of further projects with the Foundation, one of our trustees has already took part in the annual Big Sleep Out to raise money for work with homeless people in the area.
The grant monies will be used to sponsor apprentices to work across our organisation, building upon the success of our previous apprentice schemes.
Our CEO Carl Ditchburn says ‘Investing in apprentices, preparing people with the skills necessary for a workplace environment is a key part of our service delivery and we are keen to continue to build upon our relationship with the Philanthropic Foundation’.
