Trinity Fencing CIC
Traineeships for disadvantaged people
Opportunities for people who are disadvantaged and often at risk of falling into offending and crime to gain trade skills through traineeships
Trinity Fencing CIC provides opportunities for people who are disadvantaged and often at risk of falling into offending and crime to gain trade skills through traineeships. The time spent with Trinity Fencing not only helps to develop new skill sets but also build confidence and a sense of self-worth and value as part of society.
Kent Community Foundations has supported Trinity Fencing CIC grants from its Employability, Skills and Enterprise and its Vulnerable Adults themed funds in order to support their efforts in brining on new trainees and the costs associated, such as tools, uniform and CSCS Health and Safety cards.
Suzanne Lestrade, Trinity Fencing CIC, “Kent Community Foundation has supported Trinity Fencing CIC's journey and helped us reach the most vulnerable young people at key critical times. From supporting the trainees themselves, to ensuring the CIC keeps going through the Coronavirus Pandemic, we are forever grateful for their support.”
J, aged 23, Bricklayer
Currently homeless and at risk of offending and getting into crime, J is in temporary accommodation and was referred to Trinity Fencing via Swale Borough Council and is keen to start new career in fencing and landscaping with the organisation. After J failed his first attempt at the CSCS card exam, he was encouraged to take a re-test in January 2021 and succeeded in passing allowing him to begin his time on an 8-week traineeship with Trinity Fencing the next month.
