  • Sponsor a house:
    You’ll be providing a warm, safe place for five young people every night, setting them up with the skills and support to leave homelessness behind for good.
  • Step Into Work Bursary:
    Support formerly homeless young people achieve and sustain their employment with a bursary to help cover things like rent, interview clothes and skills while transitioning into work.

The benefits for your business might include:

We would love to work with you as your charity partner whether a one-off event or a longer term relationship. We are always on hand with a personal face to face approach to your business and your employees to give you a positive experience.

In September 2019, we hosted a circus themed fundraising event that we dubbed “Cirque Du Y”, inspired by our supporters over at Gallagher and of course The Greatest Showman. You can read more about that particular event which brought many businesses from Leicester together to raise money for The Y.
