The partnership between Stockport Homes and B4Box has won a prestigious award at the North West Regional Construction Awards 2018. The innovative project won the ‘Integration and Collaborative Working Award’. The winners were announced at a ceremony in Manchester on 6 July 2018.
This award win celebrates the commitment to transforming lives that Stockport Homes shares with B4Box, who provide training and employment opportunities in construction to people from disadvantaged backgrounds.
In addition, one of the successful apprentices was also crowned G4C Future Leader award, and is progressing from B4Box to Stockport Homes Group during July into a new, full time position as Building Surveyor.
