We want to end youth homelessness and we’re tackling the problem locally by providing a home and support to 180 young people in Norfolk and Suffolk every night. We give them a stable home and the skills they need so they can leave us and forge an independent life.

The Rent Deposit Scheme helps young people age 18-25 who have previously faced homelessness and are now ready to live independently to gain access to the private rented sector.

The scheme can help you to overcome the financial barriers to independent living, offers financial advice and dedicated support to help build your life skills and confidence. It benefits both landlords and tenants and has been made possible thanks to our partnership with the End Youth Homelessness campaign.

From June 2021, The Body Shop have partnered with End Youth Homelessness for their Housing Fund to benefit services including the Rent Deposit Scheme. We are grateful for this continued support.

Quote Marks Left The Benjamin Foundation has given me a sense of confidence and comfort. I feel a sense of normality when I speak to the staff but also in the independence I am given; they are always there for me and my needs. I have learnt to not be so stressed, anxious and depressed about certain situations, I have learnt a lot about money and budgeting. I now feel so much more confident about myself and the fact that I can now move forward in life.
