Job vacancies in the UK are at an all-time high with over 1.3 million opportunities available in May 2022 alone. With this rise comes much-needed employment opportunities for disadvantaged communities. However, without support, these vacancies remain unfilled continuing the cycle of unfilled job roles and high unemployment in poorer areas.
To counter this issue, Shore Construction, has partnered with charity group, WBC Cares UK, promoting programmes that support young, disadvantaged people into meaningful work through boxing, mentoring, and employment opportunities.
The programmes create positive change using boxing as a gateway into training, apprenticeships, and employment.

A MESSAGE FROM OUR FOUNDER - JAMES HOBDEN
Deprived communities need more support than ever as local government services are cut and the cost of living crisis bites. At the same time, there is a real labour and skills shortage in the UK.
We're committed to helping the communities that need support the most and believe these programmes will make a real difference
Our aspiration is to take our partnership with WBC Cares UK nationwide, using our training, apprenticeship and employment opportunities in retail and construction as stepping stones to build careers and communities. It's the perfect fit with s106 requirements too.
Rockinghorse Children's Charity are one of three charities we’re supporting this year as part of our brand ideal. Rockinghorse are the official fundraising arm for the Royal Alexandra Children's Hospital in Brighton and do amazing work raising money for life-saving equipment, specialist projects and enhanced services for young babies.
As well as making a difference in helping keep the beach clean, this was a great way to bring the team together and engage the local community. Best of all we raised £990 for Rockinghorse Children's Charity!
