Atkins supports education for disadvantaged youth

Engineering consultancy Atkins is working with a Hammersmith education centre this week to improve facilities for young people in the area.

Around 40 senior managers from Atkins will spend two days at a Resurgo and TLG: The Education Charity-run school.

The firm plans to give St Paul’s school a mini makeover, including a new private meeting room, kitchen and garden.

Douglas McCormick, managing director of Atkins’ UK rail division, said: “Education provides a path to more opportunities and we are delighted to be working with Resurgo and TLG as they transform the lives of disadvantaged young people through education and employment.

“As part of our team building programme, people from all over our rail business will roll up their sleeves and lend a hand.

“Everyone from our rail communications experts to those with civil engineering expertise will use their skills to complete tasks such as setting up a CCTV security system to building a wall in the kitchen area so that the students will have more functional learning spaces to use during their time at St Paul’s Place.”

Jo Rice, chief operating officer of Resurgo and trustee of TLG, commented: “Atkins creating a usable outside space, a new literacy classroom and a host of other building improvements is going to make a huge difference to disadvantaged young people in West London.

“We are as grateful as we are excited.”
