Prince's Trust house opened to help young people into employment

08/06/2018

After months of work, "the Prince's Trust house" at Stockhill was officially opened earlier this week by Chief Fire Officer John Buckley and Chair of the Fire Authority Brian Grocock.

The building will be used as a base for future Prince’s Trust TEAM programmes - a 12 week initiative that aims to support unemployed people, aged 16-25, into employment, education or training.

Speaking at the opening, Cllr Brian Grocock said: “The Prince’s Trust is an excellent organisation, vital for helping young people gain the skills they need for employment.

“That is why I am proud to be here today to be able to open this building which should be a vital base for the Prince’s Trust team at Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue for many years to come.”

Previously the building had been used as a training facility for firefighters and, many years ago, it was used by a Station Officer who lived on the station ground with his family.

The work to renovate the building was completed by a previous TEAM group as part of their Community project alongside property firm Keepmoat and Engie, who installed a new kitchen.
