A-Plant announces charity partnership with The Prince’s Trust

NATIONAL equipment hire firm A-Plant has announced a three-year partnership with The Prince’s Trust, with the goal of improving the future prospects of young people.

Joining the charity’s Built Environment Leadership Group as Silver Patrons, the company will be supporting a range of fundraising and community investment activities, as well as working directly with young people on various voluntary programmes.

The Trust’s Built Environment Leadership Group (BELG) is an industry-led initiative formed in 2006. Working in collaboration with The Trust, the BELG helps to provide access to opportunities in the sector for disadvantaged young people across the UK, as well as addressing wider employability issues around both the sector’s skills gap and an ageing workforce.

Asif Latief, marketing director at A-Plant said the company was “thrilled” to continue working with The Prince’s Trust.

“We are very proud to be a partner of The Prince’s Trust and privileged to be able to help young people change their lives and, above all, believe in themselves.

“A-Plant is passionate about inspiring and attracting diverse, young talent and as a member of the charity’s Built Environment Leadership Group we will be given the opportunity to provide a number of work experience placements for disadvantaged young people, which we are very excited about.”

He added, “We’ve supported the Prince’s Trust for a number of years and we are pleased to have begun supporting the charity’s ‘Get into Construction’ programme, which has been designed to support young people get a job within the construction sector and the team has begun exploring a range of other voluntary opportunities.”
