How the money you raise will help
Since 1979 Youth Concern has been providing holistic support services for vulnerable and disadvantaged young people in Aylesbury Vale aged 13-25 years old. One of our core services is Aylesbury Nightstop, an emergency host accommodation scheme for young people facing a homelessness crisis. Over the past year we have supported 83 young people through Nightstop. At Youth Concern we believe that every young person needs a safe home but unfortunately this is not the case in our local community and we need to do more.
Proposed Solution-The Next Step
Youth Concern is setting up a flagship youth supported accommodation and employment pathways project called ‘The Next Step’. This 9-bed project will provide up to 20 young people with a safe home for up to a year. Bespoke one-to-one support packages will be provided focussing on health, skills, employment
We have raised almost £1million already to fund this project so we are very close to making it a reality.
We need to secure an additional £30k to launch and run this life-changing project for 1 year. We need a further £95k to continue this vital service for a second year.
How your support will help the project
£500 = a room + support for 1 young person for 1 week
£2K = a room + support for 1 young person for 1 month
£5K = a room + support for 1 young person for 10 weeks
