Winner of the Best Contribution to a Heritage Project by Young People at the Historic England Angel Awards 2018.

The Young Person International Training Project, Great Yarmouth Preservation Trust: The Project was created to bridge the gap between the lack of training and opportunities for young people in Great Yarmouth and the millions of pounds for heritage funding that the town attracts because of its historic significance. The Great Yarmouth Preservation Trust teaches young people transferable conservation building skills in England and at workshops at a farmhouse in Bulgaria, where British youth work alongside trainees from other countries to create an international conservation community.
