Absolutely overwhelmed by the support of the Foundation – this is huge for me
The Gus Robinson Foundation – Formed in 2014
Supporting Young People on the Pathway to Successful Careers
Hartlepool N D C Trust
We are delighted to support this pioneering project which will see 15 youngsters aiming for a career in construction obtain works experience. They will be renovating/refurbishing a local property which will then be 'Let' to a deserving tenant from Hartlepool; their rental payments will then fund a similar project. This project enable youngsters to gain hand on experience, under expert supervision with the knowledge that they are investing in their own community.
