We work with various organisations that support our work in different ways. Their contributions make a huge difference to the children and young people we help.
Are you looking for a charity that you and your colleagues can support? Could you run a workshop to help young people develop new skills, or paint bedrooms and communal spaces in one of our children’s homes?
We work with lots of organisations who are committed to Corporate Social Responsibility schemes and can arrange opportunities for individuals or groups. Speak to us about volunteering today.
Sponsor a project
We run services across London, Essex, Bedfordshire, West Midlands and the Isle of Man. You can fundraise to sponsor a set project in one of our homes – maybe you could pay for a regular activity to take place, or buy Christmas presents or Easter eggs? We can send a wish list of what would help our young people the most.
We also provide a life skills programme that teaches young people essential and valuable skills for independent living. Funding towards our life skills work will reach young people across St Christopher’s and means you’re directly contributing towards their futures.
The Diamond Fund
The young people at St Christopher’s all have dreams and plans for their futures. What they don’t have are families to turn to if they need funds to enrol in college or buy a sewing machine or hairdressing scissors. Small things can become barriers to moving forwards in their lives.
The Diamond Fund helps with these things. Young people have to make a case as to what they need and why, and we can then help them out through the fund. We always welcome funds specifically towards this work as it makes an enormous difference.
Try some fundraising ideas in your office or organise your own challenge event and ask your colleagues to sponsor you. Whether it’s running a marathon, organising a bake sale or wearing your pyjamas to work, there are lots of fun ways to raise money.
We love seeing your pictures of fundraising too, so please do share them with us on social media.
''I was left feeling humbled by St Christopher’s amazing work providing 24/7 care to young, vulnerable people. We can all play our part and giving gifts and remembering people less fortunate than us is one way, so thank you.''
