The Wentworth Woodhouse Preservation Trust is a core pillar in South Yorkshire, providing the local community with programmes, training, upskilling and employment opportunities.
It supports a wide range of people including low-income households, ethnic and minority interests and disability groups.
Wentworth Woodhouse Preservation Trust has created 57 direct new jobs, 68 indirect jobs, 32 construction jobs with 93% of these jobs being filled by individuals from the local area.
7500 children and young people have benefited from their learning and education activities and numerous adults have achieved qualifications including recognised NVQs.
As well as employing and upskilling local people, Wentworth Woodhouse Preservation Trust support local culture, creativity and wellbeing.
This includes working with ArtWorks, a not-for-profit organisation that empowers artists with learning disabilities.
ArtWorks have taken part in a number of projects and placements at Wentworth Woodhouse which are now displayed throughout Wentworth Woodhouse.
The Trust now has over 200 local volunteers actively engaged, with 30% of them securing enhanced employment linked to their volunteer experience.
