Future Builders

Our Future Builders programme, delivered in partnership with OVO Foundation, is a live-in apprenticeship scheme that aims to break the cycle of homelessness for young people

We work with homeless young people who are not in education, employment or training and:

  • Provide them with the necessary training to access a construction apprenticeship and the opportunity to refurbish a property that will become their home
  • Provide an affordable and secure place to live whilst completing the apprenticeship
  • Offer them wraparound support to sustain wellbeing
  • Help them find a job and get their own place when they’ve finished the scheme

Future Builders has been designed to:

  1. Address the lack of appropriate move-on options for young people who are at the end of the homelessness pathway
  2. Support young people’s transition from supported housing to independent living and secure employment
  3. Give young people the necessary training to access full-time, sustainable employment at the end of their apprenticeship in order to avoid the cycle of repeat homelessness and address the construction skills gap
