FPS Proud to Support Construction Youth Trust

The Federation of Piling Specialists (FPS) is pleased to be supporting Construction Youth Trust, a charity whose aim is to inspire and support young people to overcome barriers and discover their full career potential in the construction and built environment sector.

The FPS shares many values and common goals with Construction Youth Trust, including developing initiatives to encourage and welcome young people into construction. Following a presentation by the Trust to the FPS at its quarterly committee meeting, FPS members have now connected to the charity, with the plan to help support them where possible, engaging to offer assistance in the Trust’s many engagements and world of work programmes.
