- To collaborate with partner organisations to deliver pre apprenticeship courses which meet the needs of the young people.

- To coordinate the refurbishment of properties, for use within the Future Builders project, including the coordination of sub-contractors.

- To approach all aspects of the project in a psychologically and trauma informed manner, adopting a ‘whatever it takes’ attitude.
