A member of our team supporting a young person at one of our accommodation centres
I consider myself very lucky to work for The Benjamin Foundation- I have been encouraged and supported to take on more challenges and can honestly say I am never bored!

Member of our staff team

I enjoy doing it. It's a good cause. I can't run marathons or jump out of planes so I do this. The money raised provides ongoing help. It equips young people for life after The Benjamin Foundation.
