Johns Slater and Haward choose 4YP for their Charity of The Year!

4YP are very pleased to announce a Charity of the Year Partnership with Johns Slater and Haward.

As JSH comments;

“Johns Slater and Haward has been providing advice to the local construction industry both in Ipswich and East Anglia as a whole for over 100 years. We are designers of engineering systems in buildings (heating, ventilation, lighting and power etc.) and work in all sectors of industry, commerce and the community.

Central to our business is training and inspiring the young people that join us, which we seek to do both through academic learning and structured work experience. We firmly believe that where there is the desire and commitment to achieve, together with a helping hand, opportunities abound. We are currently supporting 3 engineering apprentices, including one administrator.

Accordingly, and particularly with the additional challenges brought about by Covid-19, we are delighted to be supporting 4YP throughout 2021 in the pursuit of the great work it does to improve the social, emotional, physical health and well-being of young people in Suffolk.

Students help 4YP with new website
