Youth Construction Skills Project: Devon Communities Together.
Construction students and people from disadvantaged backgrounds gain experience through renovating properties which are purchased and resold at a profit and reinvested in future projects.
Devon Communities Together is an independent charity engaged in a wide range of projects and services that support a vision of dynamic Devon communities shaping their futures.
The focus is inspiring, upskilling, training, supporting and advising groups and individuals to make changes and achieve positive outcomes for Devon communities. A broad range of people are supported through the programme, from rural and coastal communities to more urban centres. They are supported across a wide variety of areas including community buildings, community resilience, affordable housing, entrepreneurship, neighbourhood and community plans, sport and play, health and wellbeing and much more – the work is always designed to help communities help themselves.
