Become an employability sponsor

We believe employment is the best way to break the cycle of homelessness and leave the streets behind for good.

Many of the people we support have complex needs, but the routine and stability a job provides are important steps in overcoming them. The vast majority of our service users want to work but find that a lack of recent job experience or relevant skills can be real barriers to getting a job.

Our employability sponsors help by providing funding for our award-winning Workwise programme and offering vaulable work placements so that people can enhance their skills and experience.

I was inspired to get involved after a visit to one of Porchlight's hostels. I was struck by the sophistication of the charity's approach, particularly its commitment to providing long term solutions to help people move away from homelessness for good. Bill Brett, Brett Group chairman

For a donation of £500 or more, you can become a Porchlight employability sponsor. More importantly, you will help make a real difference to people's lives.
