The concept of CCT was birthed in 2009 after many years of advising and guiding teenagers, young and single parents in taking hold of their future and achieving the best. CCT aims to bridge the gaps in industries by providing help and support to potential employees. It is a social enterprise with the intention of being registered as a charity.
Issues relating to teenage pregnancy, young parents and single parent families have never ceased to fill our tabloids over the decades. They have become major issues for the government and as such various strategies to tackle the increasing concerns are being considered by the local authorities and government departments.
Policies are being put in place to reduce teen pregnancy, eradicate child poverty and abuse as well as other issues relating to single parenting, teenage pregnancy and young parenting. In the setting out of CCT's vision and the initiatives planned to follow, we hope to shed some light on the aforementioned issues and to assist in providing better practical solutions to people in our community.
Community Coaching and Training (CCT) Ltd’s vision is to be the best and most distinguished provider of coaching and upskilling services to teens, young people and single parents of all ages in Medway, Kent and the whole of the South East of England.
We aim to operate a training model of distinction for the South East of England that is easily transferrable throughout the rest of the United Kingdom.
CCT demonstrates stewardship in action by “empowering the disadvantaged teen, young and single parent in the community through inspiration, motivation and practical training"
