Web News Story Image v6

We are delighted to announce that Amplicon has become the first local business to sponsor a room for a vulnerable young person in one of our 24 hour supported accommodation projects in Brighton. Supporting local charities is an integral part of the Amplicon ethos. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and especially with youth homelessness being on the rise, Amplicon is very keen to support our work with local young people.

By sponsoring a room, Amplicon will put a vulnerable young person in the local area out of danger from assault, abuse and/or illness. In addition to a safe and stable home, every young person living in our housing projects receives full support and advice services as well as training opportunities to help them live independently.

Gina Citroni, Amplicon CEO said: “We are immensely proud to be the first year long corporate room sponsor for YMCA DownsLink Group, the South-east’s largest youth charity. It came as a surprise that other companies had yet to collaborate with YMCA to support their much-needed charitable projects. We trust that our sponsorship initiative will help people become more aware of the fantastic work YMCA DownsLink Group does and encourages more local businesses to support this exceptional charity.”

Speaking about this new partnership, Chas Walker, CEO YMCA DownsLink Group said: “We’re delighted to be working with Amplicon on this initiative. By sponsoring a room for a year, Amplicon are ensuring that we can help a vulnerable young person develop the skills they will need to move on independently and give them a brighter future. Partnerships like this are invaluable to us, especially as we’re continuing to see an increase in the numbers of young people needing our support locally. We would like to thank them for choosing to support us and in making a difference to local young people.”
