Community Investment

As part of the Plaisterers’ Company commitment to community engagement, training and life-long learning in the local area, educational establishments and the associated plastering trade, we are able to support not-for-profit organisations and individuals either in kind or with financial support in the form of grants and bursaries.

Bursary values are up to £500 per applicant, however, larger sums may be awarded in individual cases if merited. The beneficiaries will probably be students currently undergoing training in the sector but may also be established practitioners who wish to enhance their knowledge or experience.

Typically, applications might be for travel expenses to support a course of learning abroad; fees for existing courses where no other support is available; wage subsidy to enable a student to pursue extra curricular skills; funding to a mentor to support achievement of advanced qualifications or costs towards enhanced disabled access to training.

The Industry Committee will give consideration to any application that supports and maintains the quality and diversity of plastering and drylining skills in the UK.
