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 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’s Young Supporters Awards

Every year we hold a very special event to recognise the immense contribution that so many young people make towards our mission to end homelessness and tackle disadvantage. If you are involved in a school or youth group and want to see your young people recognised at the next event, get in touch today to find out more about what you can do to help us end homelessness.

Community groups

School and youth groups

What do young people think about rough sleeping in today’s society? We can provide anyone working in a school or youth group setting with the resources to lead a discussion about homelessness and potential fundraising activities. So whether it’s a sponsored challenge or a non-uniform day, everyone will know they are doing it for a great cause helping people in their local community.

“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

Faith groups
Having a ready-made community of people who want to make a difference is key and we know that faith groups are exactly that. There are so many things you could do with your faith group – organise an event, put on a Carol concert, or simply dedicate a service to Framework and arrange a collection.

“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 and help people who are desperately in need of practical and social support to get their lives back on track.” 

Methodist Church, Radcliffe-on-Trent
