Free Help to Find Work

In delivering upgrades to our properties, such as kitchens, bathrooms etc., we deliver such work through a partner organisation called Procure Plus Holdings.  One of the benefits of working with this organisation is that profits are recycled back into the areas in which they work.  In Barrow they have committed funds to assist people back into work and have asked a local organisation, Inspira, to deliver these opportunities to the community.
