Building Futures for Young Londoners with Stephen Lawrence Charity Trust

The Keybridge site team, in partnership with the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust, recently held an educational day on the ‘golden rules of construction' for a group of young students. Read more below.

In partnership with the Steven Lawrence Charitable Trust, Mount Anvil’s National Skills Academy for Construction welcomed 10, year nine students from Deptford Green School to Keybridge in Vauxhall.

The Skills Academy and site teams gave the students a private tour of the construction site, to help them to understand the build process, the people involved in the project and the diverse specialisms needed to deliver new homes on time and to budget. The students also visited Keybridge's marketing suite and show apartment, where they could see a preview of the finished product. 

The day was a great success, with students telling us they "didn't know there were so many jobs in construction", and that it "was fascinating to see how it all comes together, from demolition to build and final sales". Mount Anvil was thrilled with the feedback and to be able to support the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust and some of the capital's future talent.

The Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust provides financial and practical support to young people from disadvantaged backgrounds who aspire to be architects. The trust has a purpose-built centre in South London and delivers innovative, socially aware programmes where they are most needed.
