Construction Youth Trust

Construction Youth Trust is a charity whose aim is to inspire and enable young people to overcome barriers and discover a career in the construction and built environment sector.

Our mission
Our mission is to inspire and support young people to achieve their full career potential in the construction and built environment sector. Social mobility is at the heart of our work and we prioritise supporting those young people from low income backgrounds, most likely to miss out on opportunities or facing barriers to employment. We help young people recognise their potential and discover opportunities that have never previously been presented to them.

Where we work
The Trust has identified a number of place-based hubs in which we work. The hubs have been selected based on the extent to which the area is affected by multiple deprivation, such as high levels of unemployment or in-work poverty, low skills, youth unemployment etc, and whether the built environment sector has a long-term demand for skills in the area over a minimum 10 year period.

Current hubs:

  • Hammersmith & Fulham
  • Kensington & Chelsea
  • Westminster
  • Barking & Dagenham
  • Lambeth
  • Southwark
  • Tower Hamlets
  • Ebbsfleet
