Paul has been working as a labourer with ECYHT since 2016. Paul had never really had the opportunity in his youth to gain either experience or qualifications to help him build a stable future for himself and his family. Paul volunteered with Ground Work for 3 months with no real expectations of being taken on by ECYHT. However, having been given an opportunity albeit later in life. Paul impressed all who worked with him with his discipline and work ethics that he was taken on by ECYHT as a permanent member of the construction team. Paul has had the opportunity to learn many aspects of the building trade and gained several qualifications. Paul feels that ECYHT has given him a chance in life that he may not have had otherwise. Paul feels particularly proud to be able to contribute to society thus helping others finding it difficult to get their feet on the ladder, whether that be career orientated or affordable housing.
