Get involved and help young people in Norfolk and Suffolk finally feel hopeful of a better future

For over 25 years’ children, young people and families across Norfolk and Suffolk have been supported by The Benjamin Foundation to overcome big challenges in their lives.

Each night we accommodate 100 vulnerable young people, equating to over 40,000 safe nights sleep a year for local young people. They can finally feel safe from youth homelessness. We are proud to be the regional partner for the End Youth Homelessness campaign.

Each week 150 young people access our emotional wellbeing support. In the last year this equates to 7,500 emotional wellbeing support sessions improving their mental health, increasing their self-esteem and to finally feel understood.

Each year over 250 young people attended our youth work in the community to gain new life skills, expand their horizons and finally feel confident.

Overall 2,000 local children and young people every year finally feel hopeful of a better future because of the work of The Benjamin Foundation.

Your support will help to create stronger, empowered individuals who finally feel supported to cope with their unique challenges.

Why fundraise for us?

“My Benjamin Foundation Support Worker helped me when I was homeless. They gave me a safe home, support and new skills. Because of them I finally feel hopeful of a brighter future.”

We believe no young person should be homeless. A gift from you today can help them to take their next steps to independence so they can finally feel at home and safe.
