CTD Working Together with Barnardo’s
The partnership with Barnardo’s and Ceramic Tile Distributors focuses on the following two areas:
1. Employment, Training and Skills Services
Ceramic Tile Distributors aim to help young people by preparing them for entering work, particularly into the construction Industry.
Ceramic Tile Distributors will do this by developing work placements, apprenticeships, coaching and mentoring programmes in collaboration with Barnardo’s and develop lifelong relationships with young people as future employees, customers or suppliers.
2. Starter Homes
Ceramic Tile Distributors will use their expertise in construction and building comfort, combined with fundraising, to help Barnardo’s build a series of comfortable starter homes to provide young care leavers with a “stepping stone” to independent living.
This programme, called ‘Gap Homes’ will be rolled out across the UK, starting in Scotland.
