Are you aged between 18-24 living in the Sussex area and currently unemployed? Discover DIY skills while transforming a community venue in our free Build Yourself course starting in June 2021.

These workshops will teach you about tiling, laminate flooring, wallpapering and give you an introduction to power tools.

You'll learn all the DIY skills that need to know in a professional decorating job, while transforming a community venue. And there's a chance to gain your Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) card. Practice materials and support will be provided to help you complete the final test.

The course will be lead by a professional painter/ decorator and will be running for five weeks (2 mornings per week) starting in June 2021.

Our experienced Project Officers will also be available to offer support and guidance throughout the course.
There will also be a community celebration and presentation at the end of the course to recognise your hard work and you’ll also receive your own Tool kit on completion.


For more information or to book your place, please contact Sarah Paterson at or text 'Build Yourself' to 07890 629602.

If you would rather speak to someone face-to-face, we will also be running two sign up sessions on Tuesday 25 May and Wednesday 26 May between 11am-1pm where our Project Officers will be on hand to answer any questions you may have.


The course and sign up sessions will be taking place at Four Courts Community Centre, Syndney Close, St Leonards, Hastings, TN38 9DD.
