Employability Fund


Just £23 can provide a young person with an hour of advice from a specialist coach.

Renowned artist Camille Walala, teams up with advertising agency Truant, media agency Jack and production company Mill+ to help raise awareness of EYH’s new Employability Fund.  The Fund provides specialist coaches to help homeless young people build the skills and confidence needed to get an education or a job and ultimately escape homelessness for good.

Jess's Story

Jess suffered from mental health issues and faced homelessness. She dreamed of getting into youth work so she could help other young people like her. With the support of End Youth Homelessness, her dreams came true – Jess now has a home of her own and is qualified in youth work. By donating to the appeal, we can help even more young people just like Jess.


“Homeless young people have so much potential, they’ve just had a difficult start in life.  With the right help they can achieve great things.  I got involved with the campaign because I wanted to help give hope to homeless young people. I want to help raise awareness of End Youth Homelessness’ important work and encourage other people to get involved too – a donation of just £23 provides an hour with a career coach, which gets young people on the road to independence.” – Camille Walala

A Brighter Future Report & Toolkit

The launch of the Employability Fund also coincided with the release of A Brighter Future, a piece of research and accompanying toolkit that EYH created in collaboration with the Young Foundation that explores best practices for employers and job coaches working with young people.
