Restaurant recommendations wanted to help support the homeless

StreetSmart gets amazing support from over 500 restaurants around the UK each year. However, diner recommendations and a personal touch can make all the difference to whether a restaurant manager/owner chooses to sign up to the campaign.

The Streetsmart campaign runs every November and December, where over 500,000 customers nationwide donate £1 by accepting a voluntary donation added to their bill at participating restaurants.
 
By engaging your favourite restaurants, you can help raise awareness of StreetSmart and raise valuable funds to support local projects providing life changing food, shelter and skills to help thousands of people off the street. Simply download an information sheet and speak to the owner/manager next time you dine at your preferred independent restaurants, telling them about the great work StreetSmart and Deutsche Bank do in partnership. All we need from you is the restaurant name, the owner/manager’s name, number and email address. The StreetSmart team will follow up with the restaurant, providing more detailed information on how to join the campaign.

Approximately 100 charities that address homelessness benefit from grants funded through the campaign each year with half of the funds raised going to projects that prevent youth homelessness in line with Born to Be such as ‘Streets to Success’, an intensive educational programme for homeless and disadvantaged young people like Kyle Cribbean.

After completing the ‘Streets to Success’ programme Kyle secured employment as a Barman at Premier Inn and now has a place to call home. “I cannot thank The Springboard Charity and Streetsmart enough for taking a chance on me and helping me get a job.”
 
All campaign running costs are paid for by Deutsche Bank as part of its Born to Be youth engagement programme.  Therefore, every penny raised goes straight to addressing homelessness, with a focus on young people.
