In 2017, up to 33% of UK charities’ revenues https://fundraising.co.uk/2017/03/31/10-need-to-know-fundraising-stats-for-2017/#.W5S4YOhKg54
came from donations and benefactor support. The value of such donations can’t be underestimated - without such generosity, charities like BYHP would struggle to provide their services.
Homelessness rates in the UK have shown a worrying increase in recent years https://fullfact.org/economy/homelessness-england/ , highlighting a growing problem and the tough challenges faced by many. BYHP works to support young people who are either struggling with homelessness or facing the threat of homelessness. It’s important to remember that homelessness is not an option for many but a necessity in the face of circumstances, which may well be beyond that young person’s control. BYHP works on the principle that all young people deserve to feel safe and valued, but we can’t achieve this without the help and financial support of volunteers and benefactors like you.
There are a host of ways BYHP provides support for our young people in the face of challenges such as homelessness, welfare needs and employability. We work to offer them the tools for a valuable and rewarding future. By 2025, 75% of the workforce will be millennials https://fundraising.co.uk/2017/03/31/10-need-to-know-fundraising-stats-for-2017/#.W5S4YOhKg54
, highlighting the importance of ensuring today’s young people have the knowledge and support they need to excel within their own careers.
As a charity, it is essential that we raise awareness and funds within the community to continue our work. Just recently, BYHP has attended a number of local events, including the Cropredy Convention. This was only possible due to the fantastic support of our wonderful volunteers both on the day and during the build up. Without these enthusiastic and driven individuals, events like this just wouldn’t be possible. Take a look at some of the photos from the event below!
