Our Corporate Social Responsibility
We’re supporting End Youth Homelessness - an alliance of charities and businesses committed to helping the 80,000 young people in the United Kingdom who experience homelessness each year.
The charity’s aim is to get young people off the streets and into employment, helping them to rebuild their lives and grow into healthy, happy individuals.
As a company that employs over 2000 staff, with a high proportion being in the 18-25 year old category, this is a cause close to our hearts.
Help us to End Youth Homelessness
This year we’re launching an exclusive pom pom hat with all profits going to help End Youth Homelessness. Stay cosy in this chunky knit black beanie hat, beautifully finished with a soft white faux fur pom pom. Priced at £25, which is the amount it costs to home a young person for the night, help us support this worthy cause.
EYH work towards 3 main targets: prevention, housing and work.
• Prevention: To support families to identify at-risk young people before they reach crisis.
• Housing: To ensure young people having trouble have somewhere to call home.
• Work: Supporting homeless young people into training and employment.
‘1 in 100 people experience homelessness every year. 27% eat fewer than two meals a day. 33% of people have slept rough.’
Our incredible staff have undertaken several gruelling challenges over the years in the name of EYH, including: Sleep Outs, Coast to Coast Cycles, National Three Peaks hikes, sky dives and abseils. Not forgetting our legendary bake sales, annual exclusive product launch and in store collection points.
