Make A Difference

Help us make a change

Every pound you raise can help us change the lives of young people facing homelessness, social isolation, loneliness and difficulty life circumstances.

HOME MAKER – £250 DONATION

When a young person moves into our accommodation, more often than not they arrive with very few personal belongings.

We want young people to feel safe, secure and valued in our accommodation. We pride ourselves in fitting each room with quality white goods, furniture and items for day-to-day living.

You can help us by donating £250 to provide all the essentials needed to make their place feel like home. Residents will be able to take these belongings with them once they are ready to move on, helping their smooth transition into independent living.

ACTIVE FUN – £1500 DONATION

You can help fund activities for young people who otherwise would not have access to such opportunities.

Switch up the learning experience and help young people see life beyond their immediate surroundings, get active, find creative solutions, and become confident in groups helping young people appreciate others, themselves and their environment.

Activity programmes will be delivered that safely challenge young people. The range and possibilities are endless. £1500 will provide a 3-day experience for 12 young people delivered by professionally trained staff.

YOUTH 365 – £5000 DONATION

Most of us can remember going to the youth club on a Friday night. Some things don’t change much. Your donation can pay for a fully staffed youth club for one whole year.

Youth clubs ensure that young people have the chance to build connections with their neighbourhoods, their peers and the wider community. By providing open-access youth clubs young people can meet in a safe place to explore learn and develop skills. Free from the stresses of home and sometimes family life, youth clubs help young people to be themselves.

Youth clubs allow young people to better understand social relationships. They can have a voice and influence, consider risk, make reasoned choices and enjoy social relationships. Aside from that, they have fun, as all young people should be allowed to do.
