At the Park Lodge Project every penny we raise goes towards housing, supporting and educating our young people to give them the best chance possible of a better life.


Our Partners

We cannot provide the services we do to house and support young people without our partners.

These are organisations that provide the knowledge, experience, resources and contacts that enable us to reach vulnerable young people and provide them with wrap around services that help to bring stability to their lives so they can make informed choices and have a better chance of achieving their potential.

With the help of our partners we are able to provide the building blocks for more independent living.

Local authorities are key, in particular those departments responsible for looking after children and young people some of whom come from families facing serious challenges.. Also important are services, such as health providers, colleges, social care, police and probation who know how to support and develop vulnerable young people and keep them safe. We also work closely with other local charities and services that offer more specialist support as and when it is needed.

Two years ago, we joined the Centrepoint partnering network. Centrepoint is a national charity based in London that has established a well-earned reputation for supporting homeless young people. (It was one of the favoured charities of Princess Diana and for several years Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, has been its patron). Centrepoint has created a national network of local charities working with homeless young people. By being part of this network we have access to information, advice and expertise that helps us provide good quality support for our staff and residents. We meet up with the other partner agencies twice a year, attend conferences and training events and get briefings on policies affecting young people.
