Keeping Streets of Growth’s entire charity operating each year costs less than what it costs you the tax payer for sending 8 young offenders to prison for one-year!
And yet, despite the numerous funding streams we relentlessly strive to secure and are indeed grateful for, year on year we have to go above and beyond to make up for funding gaps that affect our staffing capacity and project resourcing.
For government agencies in England and Wales to respond to reports of anti-social behaviour costs you the taxpayer approx. £3.4 billion a year. Streets of Growth have a 7 out of 10 success rate transforming the lives of harder to engage young communities and career criminals. Compare that with 36% of young inmates who go on to re-offend once released from prison (the highest rate since records began in 2002).
The hard reality is that as a grass roots charity we cannot maintain our ground-breaking approach without your vital donation. For us, every penny matters just like every vulnerable young adult matters. Your donation supports us to equip 250+ under-served young adults annually to ensure they keep out of harm’s way and thrive in their lifestyle, lived environments, education, and career, and are positive influencers in their communities.
Thank you so much for your support!
