What we're doing

It all starts with a home and a job

No young person should be living in poverty.

That’s why we’ve pioneered a scheme that gives young homeless people in Bristol, Sheffield, Norfolk, and Perth the chance to learn how to fix up derelict houses, making safe and affordable homes for them to live in.

Future Builders is our project that breaks the cycle of homelessness, by giving young people the training and skills they need.

Each of these homes is sustainably powered with subsidised renewable energy, from OVO.

And once they’ve made their house a home, we support our young people as they make the switch into longer-term work.
