We have recently been working in partnership with the Hartlepool NDC Trust who have been helping to renovate one of our almshouse properties in Stockton, making it suitable for a brand new resident to move in soon!
The Hartlepool NDC Trust is a small, local charity that specialises in construction training. The charity provides work experience and training to people who are unemployed, recovering from mental health and/or addiction problems and generally, those furthest from the labour market. As well as gaining practical construction skills, the trainees also learn about what is expected of them in the workplace, punctuality, team work, problem solving and health and safety.
Stuart Drummond, manager at the Hartlepool NDC Trust states:
"The NDC Trust is delighted to work in partnership with the Hospital of God for the first time, on the refurbishment of one of its properties, and looks forward to building a long and prosperous relationship together."
Well done lads! We hope to see more of you very soon!
