The Partnership with Saint-Gobain was launched in March 2017 with aspirations of using the expertise of Saint-Gobain as the leader in the sustainable habitat and construction materials markets to support the Gap Homes programme and Barnardo’s YouthBuild Academy. 

Saint-Gobain’s main aim from this partnership is to provide better living spaces which fits with the GAP Homes model perfectly and also  support young people towards employment and independence by combining accredited pre-employment training, work experience, holistic support and construction skills development. 

The partnership has supported and funded two key strategic projects at Barnardo’s - Gap Homes and our Barnardo’s YouthBuild Academy, providing supportive accommodation and positive destinations in construction for care leavers.
