We are delighted that B&CE are sponsoring the awards for the 5th year:

The B&CE Charitable Trust was set up in 1991 to help construction workers in need. It was founded by not-for-profit organisation, B&CE, which has its roots in construction. To date, the Charitable Trust has given out over £3m.

The Trust has three main aims – to provide financial help for people in times of need; grants towards education, training and retraining and grants towards occupational health and safety initiatives.

It helps construction workers (past and present) and their families get back on their feet when difficulty strikes. And our grants for education and training help build a strong future for the UK’s construction industry and for the people who make it work. Thanks to this funding, many charities working with young people have been able to run projects that boost people’s chances of employment and career opportunities – this is something the B&CE Charitable Trust is very proud of.
