Construction charity needs your vote!

Construction workers are being urged to vote for the Construction Youth Trust which has been shortlisted for the National Lottery Awards in the Best Education Project category.
Construction in Communities is one of ten projects nominated for the awards in this category. The winners will be chosen by public vote which is why CFC needs construction workers back its project. This round of public voting lasts until July 10. Votes can be cast online or by telephone.

The three projects in each category with the most votes will progress to the final round of public voting which will run from August 3 - 14.

There will be seven winners – one for each category – who will each receive a £2,000 cash prize to spend on the project.

So what is the Construction in Communities project about?

Construction for Communities (CFC) helps young people enter the construction industry, via an award-winning mobile classroom.

Trainers work with community groups to develop young people's skills and improve their communities through a series of projects.

These projects consist of tasters in construction such as tiling, using tools, plastering, carpentry, plumbing, maintenance, employability, careers advice and health and safety. Under-represented groups are given the skills they need to consider a career in construction.

CFC started as a project in Wales, and now works with more than 100 employers. In conjunction with community partners, they have delivered tasters to more than 1,200 young people in the past year, 90% of whom have progressed into further skills, education, employment or training.

'This funding has had a real impact on the lives of people from disadvantaged communities across South Wales,' said Wales co-ordinator Lisa Nelmes. 'It gives the members of these communities the motivation to seek opportunities in further training or employment.
