How Can I Help

Why Your Support Is Needed

We support people affected by homelessness to build their confidence and achieve their goals.

By supporting Derventio Charitable Trust’s Empowerment Fund you will make someone’s dreams come true. Your donations are used to buy small items that will have a big impact.

The people we work with are facing serious challenges in their lives. They may have survived living on the streets or have come from a traumatic home situation. They could be living with depression, anxiety and feeling like they have no worth. Most of the people we work with don’t have friends or family around and can feel isolated or forgotten.

Our goal is to help people see their potential and give practical help to make positive changes.

The Empowerment Fund

The Empowerment Fund means we can buy small but significant items to make this happen.

This could be something as simple as a new fridge to help someone settle into their new home or new shoes for a job interview. But the Empowerment Fund is not only about helping people into housing and employment. We are here to promote self-worth, confidence and motivation.

The Empowerment Fund has paid for running shoes so someone could take part in a 10k run, a mobile phone to make sure someone could stay in contact with friends and even a book of Shakespeare plays to reignite someone’s passion for literature.

Your donation will encourage people who have lived through difficult situations to think about their skills and aspirations. It will open up new opportunities and inspire people to take positive steps forward.

Please give today to change someone’s life.
