We have chosen WoRC to be our partner charity this year
CDC is delighted to sponsor WoRC – Work Rights Centre.
WoRC is a registered charity dedicated to ending in-work poverty by helping workers exit precarious work: poorly paid, unprotected, and insecure employment. Our common aims and mission are to help workers across all industries to learn about their rights and help them spot the signs of unsafe working conditions.
All workers in the Construction Industry must have the required skills, training and qualifications (NVQs). Incorrect training poses also a high health and safety risk to workers and construction companies.
The Construction Industry is a major component of the UK economy. In its diversity, it may range from infrastructure to mining, or from maintenance to workforce training. In 2014, construction output was £103 billion, 6.5% of GDP and in the first quarter of 2019 registered an output of £28.5 bn. In terms of employment, over 2.1 million people are employed in the Construction Industry. This places a huge responsibility on all stakeholders involved to protect all workers and prevent the exploitation at all levels. It is key therefore for construction workers to know how to access adequate training and recognized qualifications.
CDC is committed to working with all partners in the sector to help meet their social responsibility commitments and build meaningful support for causes such as combating precarious work.
