How to make a Difference

St Basils youth homelessness charity accommodates nearly 500 young people every night in its 39 supported accommodation schemes spread across the West Midlands region.

You can make a difference to homeless young people in a very immediate and direct way by making a donation, however big or small, to our cause.  You can also help us by volunteering your time, your unwanted items or even use your talents to make a difference. Your help will ensure that we can continue to give young people the opportunity to regain control of their lives. Thank you so much for your support!

You can increase your donation by filling out a Gift Aid declaration form, meaning we can claim back on your donation.

Gift Aid declaration

St Basils accommodates nearly 500 young people every night. We’re short of £5 a day per young person staying in one of our projects. That £5 will help us support each young person out of homelessness and transform their life. Every donation matters.

We make a difference

St Basils was there for me at a time of need, they helped me to get back on my feet and to make progress. They helped my whole wellbeing. More problems would have come from being homeless, if I hadn’t have had that support.

*How is the £5 ask calculated?

If we had no fundraising, our 2019/20 budgeted deficit would be some £855k. St Basils has 488 bed spaces across their projects, and the deficit mentioned represents £4.80 per day per room.  Adjusted for empty rooms at 6.5%, that equates to a daily shortfall of £5.13 per room, which we have reduced down to £5 for the purpose of making a clear request of what we need to keep going.
