About Us

Our background

BCT has been offering construction training , mentoring and support to young people since 2004. We moved to our current location in 2019 and we are very excited to be a part of the new community hub that is planned as  part of the urban regeneration programme.
 
This will be  an amazing resource for the Ardoyne area  and we are delighted to work along with the ABC Trust and the Flax Trust in offering training and employment opportunities for the young people of the greater Belfast area.

Our values

We firmly believe in our five core values.

  1. People– To help young people gain employment opportunities by overcoming obstacles. We believe that life is not always a level playing field and sometimes a little help us needed to even things up!
  2. Respect- We will always endeavour to treat everyone that we meet with respect and hope they will return the favour. This includes respect for the environment, nature and all living things.
  3. Kindness- We place a high importance on the people who actually ‘do’ the work. Without the men and women on site nothing would be built. 
  4. Partnerships- We believe that everything that we do involves the whole person.
  5. Community spirit- It is very hard to learn and focus if your mind is full of concerns or you don’t know where you are sleeping at the end of the day. We work with some amazing people who work tirelessly to address these issues.

We endeavour where possible to practice and teach the sustainable development goals

The only obstacle between you and your goal is you
