Youth & community connexions

Connecting communities and families Firmly together

--  support us to make a positive difference  --

We couldn't do what we do without your supports and donations from our friends, supporters and funders. There are many ways to support us, but donations are direct and quick way to make a difference. You can give to us through the channels below. Your donation will have a huge impact, not just monetarily, but in transforming the lives of many young people, including those who have been in prison, and those facing difficulties in their home life (please read more about our work for more details of who we work with). In addition, your donation will enable us to try new ways of working and to fill gaps in services to meet the needs of young people.


Your support will help us to strengthen the sustainability of our work.


All of the young people we work with come from inner city areas in the bottom 10% of the most deprived communities in the country.
44%
of our members live in child poverty
50%
have free school meals
42% come from single parent households
70% come from ethnic minority backgrounds
