About Us:

Hello! I'm Jane and I manage Essex Youthbuild, a Chelmsford-based charity.

Essex Youthbuild provides support and training for young people in Essex aged 12-19 to gain qualifications in construction skills, numeracy, literacy and health and safety.  

Many of the young people we work with are disadvantaged in some way, for example, living independently at 16, in care or leaving care, not able to maintain a place in mainstream school or college, have special educational needs, suffer from mental health conditions, etc.

We work with these young people to help them grow in confidence and self belief and gain skills and qualifications that will support them in future life.  We also help our young people with job applications, apprenticeship and college applications and support them to gain a CSCS Card - a passport to working in the construction industry.

We also run Trade School - a free, after-school activity for girls and boys aged 12-16 to come and try their hand at carpentry, bricklaying, plumbing, painting and tiling.

We need your help so we can continue to offer this much-needed support to Essex young people to help them build a positive life for themselves.

Thank you for your support and good luck!

Yours sincerely,

Jane Cosh
