The Trusts and Foundations we work with play a vital role in helping us tackle youth homelessness. Donations from charitable Trusts and Foundations account for over 25% of our voluntary income, enabling us to deliver innovative and impactful projects and services that can’t be funded from statutory income.

Why Depaul?

Depaul is one of the UK’s largest youth homelessness charities, supporting thousands of young people experiencing, or at risk of, homelessness every year.

Each person we help has a unique situation and a unique set of needs, so we focus on the individual and offer tailored support.

For those facing homelessness, we offer accommodation and coaching to develop their independence. When relationships break down, we provide support and mediation to keep families together. And when it’s time to move on, our activity programmes help young people to manage mental health problems, build healthy relationships and access education, employment and training.

How you can get involved

We’re incredibly grateful for the strong partnerships we’ve built with our trusts and foundations, who have funded some amazing and life-changing projects.

We would love you to be part of our long-term vision. Your funding could enable us to meet our strategic goals, such as the prevention of homelessness through education in schools, family mediation and the the provision of advice, guidance and shelter in times of crisis.

Whether you can contribute £1,000 or £100,000, we would like to fund a specific project or contribute towards our core services, your support will ensure that vulnerable young people can get the support they need to live a fulfilling, independent life away from the dangers of homelessness.
