Our Corporate Supporters Scheme

Andi & Vashti Bedwell of Point of Difference, Corporate Supporters

Your company could make all the difference to the quality of life, achievements and future outcomes of young people in Aylesbury. Our Corporate Supporters can select from four tiers of commitment, starting with an annual donation of £1,000.

In exchange, Youth Concern will help to promote your business by:

  • Displaying your company logo on our website
  • Mentioning your company in our social media posts
  • Providing a supporter’s certificate for your premises and icon for you to display on your website

Named plaques, tours and wider media coverage are available for higher-level tiers. In addition, we will provide all corporate supporters with:

  • Updates on projects and an invitation to our AGM
  • Free tickets for our quarterly supporter’s events

What Impact can you make as a Corporate Supporter?

With your support, Youth Concern can continue to provide:

  • A safe drop-in space where every 13-25-year-old is welcomed
  • Counselling sessions for young people in need
  • Music, art, IT, cookery and other activities to develop skills and raise aspirations
  • Employment support to enable young people to access jobs or further education
  • Substance misuse prevention services
  • Emergency accommodation for homeless young people

Many of our services are preventative in nature and focus on empowering each individual to take the next steps. We gain considerable satisfaction from seeing young people grow in self-belief. If that ties in with your company values, we would love to hear from you.

Become a Nightstop Host

If you have a spare room in Aylesbury and a caring nature, you could provide short term emergency accommodation and support for a homeless young person.

Our Nightstop hosts provide an occasional, temporary room for a young person facing a homelessness crisis. As hosts, we ask you to offer an evening meal, washing facilities and a bed for the night. We are looking for individuals with a compassionate nature, strong communication skills and the flexibility to provide support at short notice.

We understand that inviting someone new into your home can be daunting Please be assured that we provide training, 24-hour support and Youth Concern will take on responsibility for supporting the young person during the day.

We will undertake checks on you and your home prior to any placements. We will also risk assess any young person we intend to send to you. Whenever possible, we aim to find a good match and we clearly explain your house rules in advance. The support is offered and reviewed on a night by night basis and would not extend beyond 3 nights.
