Housebuilder Bellway is working alongside Welsh homeless charity Llamau to give young people an exclusive glimpse into the construction industry.
The group from Llamau – which aims to get vulnerable young people into work – visited the housebuilder’s Manor Chase development off Gloucester Road in Tutshill.
People being supported by the charity were given a tour of the development by Bellway staff, who also gave them an insight into the types of jobs that the construction industry has to offer.
Bellway also presented Llamau with a cheque for £5636, which was raised after Bellway staff took part in the charity’s annual sleep out last year.
Gareth Hawkins, Learning 4 Life Contract Coordinator at Llamau, said: “It’s really great to be able to give our young people a glimpse into what the construction industry has to offer. We’re very grateful to Bellway for hosting us.
“At Llamau, we are committed to helping vulnerable people get back onto their feet and find work, so it was extremely beneficial for them to visit the development and gain an insight into the industry.”
Simon Hughes, Development Manager for Bellway Wales, said: “We really enjoyed hosting the young people from Llamau to visit our development at Manor Chase.
“We are extremely pleased to be able to support Llamau’s fantastic work and we are looking forward to continuing to build on our relationship in the future.”
Llamau is the leading homelessness charity in Wales and helps young people to regain the necessary skills to live independently.
