Work Placements With Action Trust
Action Trust offers supervised training and work placements, subject to availability, to people who have experienced homelessness and are usually long-term unemployed. Training and supervision is carried out by our Premises Manager and one of the Action Trust team. The work placement is structured over a six to twelve week period, giving our trainees the skills, confidence and independence to move into future employment and break the cycle of homelessness.
Thanks to a grant from the Pret Foundation Trust, Action Trust has acquired a new van allowing the social enterprise to offer more work placements. The placement is a great chance to train through volunteering whilst gaining practical experience needed to move into future employment.
By choosing Action Trust to complete your cleaning or gardening job you will be supporting us in our mission to provide a chance for change.
