Cardiff Community Housing Association
The Association has been involved in three phases of the Cardiff Young Builders project over the last five years.
The project's objective is to develop a multi-agency approach to deliver sustainable outcomes for young people by breaking the 'no job, no home cycle'.
The project has four key components: provision of a training programme with support; provision of self-contained housing with support for the duration of the project, to prepare the participants for successful independent living in the future; a real opportunity for employment in a recognised building trade at the end of the programme; and, for those in housing need, the opportunity to secure permanent accommodation upon successful completion of the programme.
Funding has been secured from the European Social Fund, New Deal, the partners involved and the private contractors who provide training placements for the participants. The most recent phase assisted six young people to learn a trade, of which three were given permanent employment with the contractor. The Association evaluates the scheme on an annual basis.
