Build Yourself project

Our brilliant Build Yourself project teaches DIY skills to those aged between 18 to 24. It's a great chance to build their confidence and develop team skills. Participants are given guidance by a professional painter and decorator.

And there's even help and support to gain a CSCS (Construction Skills Certification Scheme) card for those interested in working as a labourer.

This project offers:
  • Four fun DIY workshops to start with, learning skills like wallpapering and how to use power tools
  • The chance to decorate a community venue or space (two mornings a week for five weeks).
