November 15 2019.  Rob Briggs and Roy Sherlock took part in the Norwich sleep out, raising £2000 for the Foundation. Big thanks to them and all who sponsored them.

The Benjamin Foundation aims to provide hope, opportunity, stability and independence to young people and families who may be struggling to make the best of life. There are three main strands to the work.

Homelessness. With accommodation in several of our market towns, the Foundation provides a stable and supportive home for more than 100 young people at any one time to get them equipped for moving on to their own future.

Children and families. Working through more than 80 schools, support is provided to families in need with practical guidance on young people’s issues and employment.

Stores.  Marketing unwanted furniture generates funds for this life-changing work. Donations of good quality items always appreciated.
