Hertfordshire Fire and Rescue Service work with the Prince’s Trust to deliver a 12-week programme for young people aged 16-25 who are not in employment, education, or training. As part of this qualification, they take part in a community project for 2 weeks.

The current young people on the programme in Hemel Hempstead decided to complete their community project at Hammond Academy Primary School, renovating their garden area. They successfully weeded the garden, painted the vegetable beds, laid fresh shingle, and put in concrete stones to make a path. New flowers were planted, and vegetable seeds were gifted to the school.

The team fundraised £260 for this community project by completing a 5-mile sponsored walk (in the rain!). They used the money raised to buy the supplies needed for the project.

At the end of the 12 weeks the learners will have gained confidence, skills, and knowledge they did not have prior, leaving with a qualification in employability, teamwork, and community skills.
