Depaul UK - Helping the Young and Homeless

I was at a meeting earlier this week where there was a speaker from Depaul UK. This is a charitable trust that works with young disadvantaged and the homeless. From their website:

Depaul UK helps young people who are homeless, vulnerable and disadvantaged.

  • We protect young people by finding them a place to call home.
  • We prevent young people becoming homeless by rebuilding family relationships and offering through the gate support to young offenders.
  • We provide young people with the chance to fulfil their potential through education, volunteering and training.
Depaul UK is part of Depaul International, a group of charities working to support homeless and marginalised people around the world.

It is worth looking at the site and thinking about making a donation.  It may come as a surprise but there are homeless and disadvantaged youngsters in "prosperous" boroughs and towns.
