Why support Streetwise?
Streetwise is a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (registration no: 1157194) and we rely entirely on fundraising, donations and grants, to be able to do the work we do.
Streetwise support over 300 vulnerable young people per year; and we find it incredibly helpful when our young people, volunteers, supporters, colleagues and stakeholders help us not only raise essential funds, but also raise the profile of the service, which helps us reach more vulnerable young people in need.
No matter who you are or where you’re from, we want all of your efforts to not only raise much needed funds for Streetwise, but to also be a fun and rewarding personal experience for you.
Remember that all of the money that you raise will go directly towards supporting vulnerable young people in need.
Your support could help us in a number of ways.
£1 -would pay for a cup of tea and biscuits for a young person who is meeting their support worker for the first time.
£5 -would pay for a bus-ticket for a peer-mentor to meet an isolated young person and support them to access mental health services.
£10 -would provide a budget for one session of cooking group, where young people learn budgeting, shopping, healthy eating and a new recipe.
£20 -would pay for fuel, toiletries and basic living items for a young person to move their belongings from a place of crisis to a safe location.
£50 -would allow us to take 10 anxious and isolated young people on a trip in to the community, where we can practically challenge their anxiety, meet new people and increase their confidence.
£120 -would pay for 6 one-to-one sessions of formal counselling for a young person who is in distress and needs a safe place to explore their troubles.
