Collection Tin Placement Volunteer

Why we need you

Step by Step passionately believe in supporting young people aged 11 to 25, who are going through hard times, including homelessness. Our unique step by step approach providing accommodation, personal development and specialist services helps young people realise their aspirations and reach their full potential. Our work is transformative, enabling young people to become thriving members of the community. 

For every £1 invested in Step by Step, £5.60 of social value is generated for Society.

One way that we can raise both our profile and also vital funds is through the placement of collection tins in local businesses, pubs, restaurants, etc. We need you to help increase the reach of our collection tin network and maximise the fundraising from this important source of voluntary income.
