We’re back with another Charity of the Month and our winner is Depaul. 

Depaul is a UK charity that works with some of the most disadvantaged and vulnerable people across the UK. the organisation helps homeless people not only to find a place to stay but to make the transition to the life they deserve — one with long-term security, prospects and hope.

Here are just a few great reasons why Depaul is a worthy recipient of our Charity of the Month:

Depaul helps get young people off the streets 

Depaul has a simple vision: a “society in which everyone has a place to call home and a stake in their community.” 

The charity was founded in 1989 as a reaction to London’s rising homelessness crisis, one that has only continued to increase — recent figures estimated that there over 170,000 people sleeping rough in London every night. 

Depaul has spent over 30 years doing all it can to tackle this and give people a home. 

Since 2016 it’s been supported by UK Finance, the “collective voice for the banking and finance industry.” This has helped the charity to secure thousands of pounds in donations, giving additional funding to continue its good work. 

Depaul helps people connect with society & live independently

Depaul works in some of the UK’s poorest areas, helping some of the most disadvantaged communities and vulnerable people. 

Its aim is twofold: to prevent homelessness and to support young people who are homeless. 

Depaul tackles this though a number of different projects, including: 

  • Depaul House
  • Islington Progression Houses
  • Alone in London

It also provides positive pathways to people over 18 and offers money management assistance to people in Depaul services aged 16-25.
