Last year saw the launch of the B&CE Charitable Trust Mowlem Award – a scholarship given to an organisation that demonstrates achievements in training and the promotion of health and safety in the construction industry. 

B&CE is now offering the opportunity for new applications to bid for this year’s award.

  • We are looking for applicants involved in training which have made a significant difference to the construction industry in the UK and Northern Ireland.
  • They need to have helped 50 or more individuals in the last 12 months, encouraging diversity within the construction industry along the way.

B&CE’s Charitable Trust is the charity that gives back to construction. The trust achieves this by providing grants towards education, training and retraining for employees, past and present, alongside young people looking to start a career into construction.

Together with the RI Beck Trust, B&CE’s Charitable Trust recognises achievements in training or promoting health and safety in the industry by giving the Mowlem Award to organisations demonstrating these values. This is a unique opportunity to recognise those who have made a significant contribution to the construction industry.

The Mowlem Award furthers the work of the now ceased RI Beck Trust – a charity set up in 1983 by the construction company, Mowlem. The RI Beck Trust was pleased to extend its scope and join with B&CE’s Charitable Trust so its shared aims and objectives could be continued through the award.

The first Mowlem award was presented in 2015 to Shekinah Mission, an organisation new to the Trust. Read their case study here.

To see just how the award benefited the Shekinah Mission you can watch our latest video to see some of the great work the Charitable Trust has achieved.
