Giving back

Irebuild is a company that believes in rebuilding lives, not just structures. 

A big part of our ethos is to give education and employment to those in need, whether that be through apprenticeships or by working with Exeter Chief’s Hitz Programme (see below).

We also give our clients the opportunity to give back to their local communities.

How we give back

1. Upskilling

Our business offers support, flexibility and training to young people, many of whom are from troubled circumstances. Through apprenticeships, personal mentoring and training, participants are able to gain vital skills and qualifications that enable them to build new futures. 

We also include extreme sports training and mentoring to provide an alternative to the bravado associated with drugs and violence, and to enable participants to reconnect to themselves, their coaches, and to nature.

Have skills to share?

We like to invite tradesmen and experts to give educational talks and demonstrations, as well as others who can take participants out for recreational activities like surfing and kayaking. So, whether you are a tradesman or an outdoors enthusiast, we would love for you to get in touch.

2. Community Days

In the case of some of our larger projects (for example, Otter Farm and The Linhay), we invite local schools, young people and adults alike to visit the site so that they can learn more about construction work and the environment.

In particular, we work with the Exeter Chief’s Hitz programme to offer hands-on education and recreational opportunities to underprivileged young people.

3. Charitable giving

We offer building expertise, mentoring and recreational activities to local charities and organisations free of charge.

One such example is Bristol Schools Camp where we helped to set up an outreach programme for vulnerable young people. As well as providing mentors and activities instructors, the Irebuild team also ensured the setup and general maintenance of Bristol Schools Camp, Exmouth, for seven years.

During this time, our team has helped to facilitate outdoor experiences for more than 8500 children.
