35 homeless young people will have a home of their own this Christmas thanks to the Society funded Rent Deposit Scheme for EYH.
With an estimated 83,000 young people homeless in the UK, we are pleased to work with EYH; a national movement to end homelessness among 16-25 year-olds in the UK.
People across the UK can help support EYH and the Rent Deposit Scheme and spread a little festive cheer by buying a set of Christmas tree decorations for £1 per design, from our branches and agencies around the country.
Jo Taylor, Community Manager for Yorkshire Building Society, said: “As Christmas is traditionally a time for giving, we want to give homeless young people the best gift of all, a home. Through our partnership with End Youth Homelessness we are providing help for young people in need, but this is only possible thanks to the support we receive from customers and the public. By buying a set of our Christmas decorations or making a donation, you will be helping homeless young people at one of the most difficult times of the year.”
Nick Connolly, Managing Director of End Youth Homelessness, said: “I would like to say a heartfelt thank you to all the customers and members of staff at Yorkshire Building Society who have contributed so far to our charity partnership. Through their donations and support we are able to help more homeless young people this Christmas.”
