Scouts and Guides

We would like to invite your group to do something unforgettable...

Give a Young Person Hope for the Future

Here at Step by Step we work with young people aged 11 to 25 going through hard times, including homelessness. 1 in 100 young people are now expected to experience homelessness (Young People Count 2016) the issue is real and affecting young people every day right here in the UK.

We would really like to build a relationship with your group to raise awareness of our work as well as vital funds to enable us to support around 1,900 young people who will turn to us for help this year.

As Guiding / Scouting is all about coming together in friendship in a safe environment, we have tailored our fundraising ideas for your group around this. We know that many of the young people in your group will also be working towards awards / badges so we can ensure that each person who takes part receives a personal certificate to celebrate their fundraising and use in any portfolios they are putting together.

Ideas to help get you started:

  • Beetle Drive
  • Soup and a Roll supper
  • Bring and Buy Sale
  • Sleep Out
  • Bucket Collection

During MAD Week 2016, 12 different groups took part in the events listed above and raised nearly £1,950 through their hard work.  The money they raised have already made a really positive impact in the lives of the young people we are working with.

Some of the groups did one activity, some took on several challenges to raise the monies and a few groups joined together so that the local Scout and Guide groups did a joint fundraiser to maximise the amount raised.

Some other ideas:

  • Car Wash
  • Sports Day
  • Talent Show
  • Fashion Show
  • Cake Sale

How could your money help?

We have five main Foyer sites - Basingstoke, Havant, Aldershot, Fareham & Gosport and Dorset. At each of these locations it is vital that we provide social activities for young people as part of our support in helping them to build a brighter future for themselves. 

We aim to provide them with activities both at our Foyers and off-site during the year.  We have 92 beds in total across our Foyers and it costs £11,960 a year to provide social activities for the young people.

If your group raised:

  • £996 it could provide social activities for one month across all our Foyers
  • £498 it could provide social activities for two weeks across all our Foyers
  • £249 it could provide social activities for one week across all our Foyers
  • £71 it could provide social activities for a weekend across all our Foyers

Any amount - no matter how large or small would really make a difference to young people in your area.

We can provide you with flyers, balloons, collection tins / buckets and a dedicated fundraiser to ensure that you receive any support you need with your fundraising. We would also be delighted to come to one of your group meetings or email across a personalised video to show at a meeting to explain a bit more about what we do and how your support will make a difference.
