Free construction skills training to the military community


Building Heroes, an award-winning military charity, has opened a brand new centre in Wales, expanding its construction skills and training courses across the UK at thirteen training locations.

Established in 2014, Building Heroes is a charity that provides free construction skills training to the military community and supports employment. They aim to tackle unemployment among those that have kept us safe by offering them a seamless career in construction.

Brendan Williams, CEO of Building Heroes, said: “When we first started Building Heroes, we were a small, local charity supporting service leavers, veterans, reservists and the wider military family in transitioning into a career in civilisation. Never did we think we would grow to what we are today. I am deeply proud of our dedication and commitment to the charity and helping those that kept us safe.” 

Building Heroes offer a broad range of courses in multi-skilled construction, groundworks and civils, engineering and plant operation.

Brendan Williams continues: “The success and recognition of Building Heroes continues to increase, and now with opening a brand new centre in Wales, we couldn’t be happier!”

Building Heroes have helped over 1600 service leavers, and veterans across the country gain skills, which lead to diplomas and qualifications, whilst opening doors for job opportunities and they are the only charity in the UK that offer this unique, recruit, reskill, redeploy service.
