DONATE & help us prevent youth homelessness

Since March 2020, we've seen a staggering 61% increase in vulnerable young people needing our help in Sussex and Surrey.  Your donation could give a homeless young person a safe place to live and support them into education, training or work.
Donate to our charity to give a young person a second chance at a brighter future. Thank you.

We use Enthuse’s secure donation software to collect online donations.

Lihle’s story

Lihle was struggling to meet the cost of travel to college. Thanks to funding from YMCA DownsLink Group she was able to continue her course until her bursary came through.

We’ve tried to make donating through our website easy and accessible for all and use Enthuse to do this. They charge no platform fees, 0.5% and 20p on each transaction.
