NFF's nominated charity is the youth foundation; Wealden Works (formally known as Heathfield Works) . This wonderful organisation helps struggling youngsters in the local area, to make a successful transition from full-time education to the workplace. Over the years more than 30 students from Wealden Works have secured either work experience or employment with NFF Ltd.
The Works! is a ten-week programme that helps unemployed young people in isolated rural areas find new opportunities and work. Newton & Frost Fencing works closely with Wealden Works!, providing work experience for young people on the programme. In a week they get to understand the fundamentals of being in the work place, such as team work, adherence to Health and Safety rules and how to conduct themselves in the workplace.
We are proud that several of our current full-time staff have come through the Wealden Works! programme. We provide them with the necessary skills and experience to help bridge the gap between education and employment. Some use it as purely a stepping stone to a new career, or further education, while others have found Newton and Frost a place in which they are happy to stay!
