The power of a community

There are so many ways to raise money with your community group, family or friends. Together, why not come up with loads of creative and fun ideas to achieve your fundraising goal. There’s no limit to what you can do, and we are grateful for every single donation we receive.

Could your community group help raise funds for Framework?

We have strong and meaningful relationships within many of the communities we serve. From schools and youth groups to faith groups and sports clubs, we are ready to work with your group to help you achieve your aims – whether they be educating tomorrow’s changemakers about the complex issue of homelessness, raising awareness of our vital work or raising essential funds – so that together, we can help end homelessness and tackle disadvantage.

You could set your own challenge, throw it open to your group to come up with ideas or get involved with one of our fundraising events. Whatever you decide, you can be confident that every pound you raise will be making a difference and will be hugely appreciated by everyone at Framework.

Our Fundraising Team would love to talk to you about how your community group can support our work. Contact us at

Framework YSA
When we first started talking to the children about homelessness, it was clear that they held very stereotypical views on what homelessness is. Our relationship with Framework has been instrumental in helping us change these perceptions.
Brookside Primary School, East Leake
“We’re really keen to support Framework as they carry out a role which is at the forefront of what we believe in as a Church. They get out into the heart of the local community, helping people who are desperately in need of practical & social support to get their lives back on track.” 
Methodist Church, Radcliffe-on-Trent

Fundraising spotlight

Isa is 13, and has supported Framework in many ways over the past year. Not only did he take part in our official Big Sleep Out with his Scout group, he also slept out for three nights prior to this in his garden, to raise extra funds and awareness. On top of that, Isa took part in interviews with BBC Radio Nottingham, Notts TV and the Evening Post to promote his fundraising activity.

Isa then decided to put his passion and talent for drawing to good use by designing and selling a special Christmas card for our benefit, producing around 300 copies.

In total, Isa has raised over £700 to date and has plans to do even more. Thanks Isa!

 “I want to help people who are struggling and less fortunate than me. The best way for me to do that is by raising money for Framework to support them. I think it’s important that we educate people about homelessness and rough sleeping so that they understand what it’s like to not have a home and are less judgemental.” Isa Bicer, 13
