Starting today, 549 restaurants and 30 hotels across the UK will be adding an optional £1 to bills during November and December as they participate in this year’s StreetSmart and SleepSmart campaigns.
By funding all of the costs of the campaign since 2006, Deutsche Bank ensures that every penny goes straight to homeless charities working in the community where you donate.
Last year, the campaigns raised over £805,000, which supported 103 local charities tackling homelessness ranging from food banks and winter shelters to housing advice and employment training. This support has been crucial as charities battle with a 33% increase in homelessness since 2010.
Help support the most vulnerable people in our community by choosing a restaurant or hotel supporting StreetSmart or SleepSmart this winter. To find out more and to see the full list of participating restaurants click here, and for hotels, click here.
80,000 young people will experience homelessness this year, often ending up in hostels, squats or sleeping rough as a result of family breakdown. Without a safe and secure home, young people face more challenges to access education and employment opportunities. Through the Born to Be youth engagement programme, Deutsche Bank is committed to helping young people fulfil their potential which is why 48% of funds raised by the campaign last year supported preventative projects for young people.
