This winter period is going to look different this year for all of us. However one thing remains the same – we’ll still be supporting young Londoners and families whose lives are affected by violence and exploitation.

We’re continuing our urgent work. Violence and exploitation doesn’t stop for a pandemic. Covid-19 will have a devastating impact on the young Londoners and families – both now and in the long term.

That’s why more than ever we need your support.

Support us today and together we can ensure young Londoners and their families affected by violence and exploitation not only survive this crisis, but thrive in their futures.

Ways you can help

Make a donation to our Just Giving Page

Making a donation to our Just Giving page is little effort for big impact. Every donation made goes towards improving the lives of young Londoners, their families and communities affected by violence and exploitation.

Not sure how much to give? Why not donate the amount you’re saving on your daily artisan lattes. That’s around £12 a week. It seems small, but can it make a big difference.

Regular monthly donations are invaluable to Safer London in this time of crisis and challenge, however, no matter the frequency of your donation, you’ll be making a real difference to the lives of young Londoners and their families who have been affected the most by the coronavirus pandemic.

DONATE TODAY

Fundraise for Us

You can raise money for Safer London by setting up a personal fundraising page on Just Giving. Make sure to make personalise your page with your story and some photos. Your friends, family and colleagues can easily donate to us through your fundraiser.

You can even set up your own virtual ‘Collection Tin’ to replace the traditional donation bucket. Set one up via Just Giving and encourage people to make those small donations.

Why not donate your birthday!

We know we can’t get together and share presents for our birthday at the moment, so how about suggesting your friends donate to your fundraiser instead. When you’re able to meet and hug your friends again, your donation will make sure that Safer London will still be here supporting young people across London rebuild their lives and thrive.

Virtual bake off

Great British Bake Off may have finished but doesn’t mean that we have to take off our aprons and put our whisks away!
