Together to Zero will see local VCFSE organisations receive funding and skills training to become greener as part of Liverpool City Region’s commitment to become Net Zero carbon by 2040. The project will also help raise aspirations for young people to pursue exciting, sustainable career opportunities in the local region. Together with St Helens Borough Council and Glass Futures, St Helens Chamber will be engaging with local organisations including businesses, universities, training providers and schools to discover how best to upskill the current workforce.

The project will cover 3 main areas:

Improving Workplace Skills: Our aim is to deliver the right training, awareness and support to management teams and technical staff.

Skills Innovation Grants: Offering a ‘Skills Innovation Grant’ to help employers quickly pursue new curriculum ideas and work individually with businesses to meet their needs.

Inspiring Children: We will work with schools and partners to deliver activities which will inspire children and young people to engage with these careers.
