These are the charitable arms of Homeserve and Clarion Housing Group and they focus on improving social mobility and using apprenticeships to create opportunities for young people.

“Steve Willis Training works with Clarion Futures to provide support to apprentices as they move into work through their training programme,” said a Steve Willis spokesman.

“Collaborating with Homeserve Foundation will strengthen our commitment to promoting apprenticeships to employers as both a great way to grow a business, and the route to a bright future for young people in our area.”
