Building Better Opportunities: travel's no issue

Travel to interviews, work placements or education facilities can be a hurdle, not just due to licenses or rail links, but finances too.

Staff Training Helps Improve Staff Loyalty

Staff loyalty benefits the company in more ways than not. When hiring new staff, there’s always uncertainty on the value of the employee, will the time and money placed into recruitment be worth it?

In 2018 alone they supported 1519 adults and children. The ethos of Green Light Trust is to work WITH people, the CEO Tom says, “We don’t work on people and we don’t work on the environment, people come to us and they’re part of the organisation while they’re with us.”
