2018 is our 135th birthday and we’re challenging you to raise £135 in 135 days

Our vision is for every young person to have a safe place to call home and the support they need to create lasting change in their lives. Can you take on the challenge this year to help us support young people facing homelessness? You can read more about our approach and vision here.

We need you!

We are here to help you with your challenge should you choose to accept. You could take part in an organised event and choose The Y as your charity; setting that all important fundraising target at £135.

Alternatively, you could “do your own thing”. This will allow you to get really creative and challenge yourself to come up with something unusual to make an impact with your friends and family. We have some ideas on fundraising activities to start you off here.
