We are extremely grateful to all the individuals, companies, and grant-making bodies that believe in and support Hope for the Young’s work. Their generosity and commitment directly enables us to remove the barriers that stand in the way of young refugees and asylum-seekers accessing education, integrating with their communities, and leading successful and meaningful lives.
In 2020, over 30,000 people had waited more than a year for an initial decision on their asylum claim, including nearly 7,000 children. Ineligible for student loans, prohibited from gaining employment, and receiving just £39.63 a week to live on, many young people begin to lose hope whilst they wait in limbo unable to pursue their goals or move forwards with their lives.
By contributing to Hope for the Young’s vision of a UK where all refugees can access education and get the personalised support they need to succeed, we can ensure that this time does not go to waste. Our work provides young refugees and asylum-seekers with access to education and offers them tailored one-to-one support alongside their studies so they can develop the skills, knowledge, and confidence they need to achieve their potential and become integral members of our society.
We maintain strong relationships with our partners and would love to hear from individuals or organisations that can support our work. This could be anything from donating a gift, sponsoring our events, or running employee fundraising days. You may be also able to implement payroll giving in your organisation, provide us with pro-bono support, or simply follow and share our work with others.
Being such a small charity, our supporters see directly where their money is going and how it impacts the lives of young refugees and asylum-seekers when they arrive in the UK. If you would like to discuss how to get involved please get in touch at email@example.com
