Herefordshire Wildlife Trust is one of a number of organisations who will deliver practical training sessions as part of the Building Better Opportunities programme funded by the National Lottery Community Fund and European Social Fund. The project aims to build the skills and confidence of people who are not in work to help them into the job market.


The scheme will be managed by charity Landau who are already successfully delivering a similar project in Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin.
