B&CE Charitable Trust has launched the Mowlem Award 2020, which is now open to applications.

The trust is looking to award £20,000 to an organisation that aims to deliver training, and/or promotes health and safety in construction. A panel of trustees will consider entries following the closing date for applications, which is Friday, October 23.

Trustees will be looking for applications that make a significant difference to the construction industry; will benefit a minimum of 50 individuals within the year; be from an organisation with recognised construction industry accreditations and one that is linked to an employer or placement to gain hands-on experience, such as apprenticeships or day release. 

Nicola Sinclair, spokesperson for B&CE Charitable Trust, said: “As an organisation with its foundations rooted deep in construction, we are delighted to be able to hold the Mowlem Award again. The coronavirus pandemic meant that we had to postpone the 2020 award. Now we’re ready to support deserving organisations and welcome applications again. The successful application will need to demonstrate a passion for the industry and a commitment to nurturing new talent.”

Past winners include Essex Youthbuild, which picked up the award last year, after impressing judges with the work it does getting disadvantaged youngsters the necessary credentials needed to work on building sites.

Jane Cosh, chief executive of Essex Youthbuild, said:

“Winning the Mowlem Award has been a great thrill for Essex Youthbuild. It is a prestigious award and endorses our practice of embedding safety in all the teaching we do with young people.”

Organisations interested in applying for the award can visit the award page here by October 23.


Notes to editor:

  1. B&CE’s Charitable Trust was set up in 1991 to give back to the construction industry by providing help for people working in construction in times of need, including grants towards education, financial support and retraining. It has given out more than £3.5 million in charitable donations.

Launched in 2015, the Mowlem Award furthers the work of the RI Beck Trust – a charity set up in 1983 by the construction company, Mowlem. The annual £20,000 grant is awarded to organisations that can demonstrate they will make a real difference towards training or the promotion of health and safety in construction.
