Help to employ a young person from our programme

We are SO close to making this young man's dream job a reality. The Running Charity would love to employ Steven, a young man who has been through our programme himself, after he experienced homelessness whilst growing up.

Be a fundraiser

The campaign has now expired but it's not too late to support this charity.


The Running Charity is asking for your support to employ a special young person to be our London Programmes Coach, helping to support many other homeless young people to achieve their potential. As a young man who was once homeless himself and who has been through our award-winning programme and seen its benefits firsthand, Steven knows what it means to find your feet with the support of a strong and caring network. Our work is centred on seeing as more than just another homelessness statistic but as a young person with a bright future ahead of them.

We are SO close to making this a reality, please get involved. We have already had some great support for this role from an independent funder and we are nearly there in reaching our target to secure the role fully.... but not quite. We are asking for help from any person who can see the value that this role will bring in supporting some of the most vulnerable young people that there are in society by having Steven become a member of the coaching and support team now that he has his personal training qualifications and has volunteered for both us and a drugs support charity. He is serious about the impact that this work can do and we hope that you are too. Please consider supporting our campaign to see Steven employed with The Running Charity.
