To fulfil their pledge to offer an apprenticeship they employ three apprentices in their Café INDIEpendant project. They also use a flexible approach to personal skills development which includes coaching, training and peer support to enable people to progress, develop, and engage.

Signing up to the pledge has benefited the organisation by creating opportunities for sustaining and developing partnerships. It has also provided an opportunity to showcase and learn from other projects and to develop their own skills further. It also contributes to their Charitable Objectives and improves the way they perform as an organisation.

They encourage others to support the campaign, to share their skills and to join and contribute with others who are committed to the development of the Humber region.
