Testimonial: Depaul UK

Depaul UK is a youth-focused charity that works in some of the most disadvantaged communities to prevent homelessness and to provide support every step of the way to young people at their most vulnerable.

Depaul UK is a vital lifeline for many and the crisis caused by COVID-19 has threatened a huge number of young people with financial instability. 16-24 year olds are twice as likely to work in sectors shut down and are set to make the hardest losses from coronavirus. Those who are already vulnerable will be put at further risk.

Depaul UK's work spans a range of projects from emergency accommodation and long-term housing provision and support through to outreach work with those at-risk of homelessness.

Merchant Taylors' Foundation's vital donations have enabled Depaul UK to support young people, like King, (below) who experienced homelessness in London. In the video below, find out about the services and support your giving helped fund.
