We have appointed a new Chair to champion the voice of our customers.

PM Training is the first training provider in the country to be recognised as an ‘attachment aware’ organisation, supporting positive mental health and wellbeing in young people.


I had completed my A levels at college, and I realised I didn’t want to go to university. I found the idea an unrealistic next step for me, something I didn't actually want to do, so I decided to do something completely different.

Why we joined PlaceShapers

"Our customers are at the heart of everything we do and by being a member of the PlaceShapers Group, we will be working with like-minded organisations in our aim to provide excellent services"

 During October 2015, our Group Chief Executive, Sinéad Butters became Chair of Placeshapers. She said: 

“For me, at this point in our history, it wasn't a difficult decision to stand.  Now is the time for PlaceShaper members to really promote what we do; to make the case for house building of all tenures and community investment, for aspiration, social mobility and regeneration, working hand in hand.  These things aren't mutually exclusive and we have proven our model works.  Now it's time others get that message too.

“In my role as Chair, I am determined I get to know our members even better and with their help ensure our value and the value of our sector doesn't get lost forever.”
