Local Labour Hire CIC is now a partner with Building Lives Training Academy. Originating in the London Borough of Camden, this social enterprise guarantees 50 apprenticeships for disadvantaged people every year. MHDT was instrumental in expanding the Academy into the the London Borough of Hackney for the first time.
