Roundabout is Sheffield's youth homeless charity providing shelter, support & life skills to young people. The charity believes the best place for a young person to be is at home, as long as it is safe. Mediation can help to rebuild fractured relationships at home, preventing a young person from feeling the need to leave.

The charity first opened its doors in 1977 as a small emergency hostel accommodation and in June 2014 they opened their Homeless Prevention Service as prevention is important to the charity.

How donations make an impact…

  • £5 provides bedding for a young person when they move into a hostel.

  • £20 buys food for a young person for a week.

  • £50 pays for breakfast for all young people in the hostel for one week.

How to go the extra mile!

This is your chance to be creative or do something extra. The charity host ‘Sleep Outs’ annually which are safely held in a warehouse. It is not meant to replicate actual homelessness but it gives a small insight into the challenges faced by many vulnerable young people. Supporters get sponsored to embrace the cold night by swapping warm beds for a sleeping bag and a hard floor.

You can generally fundraise for the charity by organising a bucket collection, selling unwanted clothes or giving up coffee!
