Storytelling is at the heart of what we do as a charity sector. We unlock human stories and share them with the world to engage, inspire and educate.
The Amber Foundation transforms lives by supporting disadvantaged young people to move on to sustainable, independent futures. They do this by offering a blend of support, structure, new experiences and training that really inspires young people to take responsibility for their lives and move forward.
Anthony, a former resident says
"It was weird at first; it wasn’t like a normal hostel that just gives you a roof over your head. But in the end I liked the structure and the training - even the routine things like cooking - and it helped get me back into a normal way of living, the habits you need for a job and a home and so on. And if you feel like you’re slipping back, the staff are always right there to support you."
In Kind Direct has been working with the Amber Foundation since 2010. Claire Miller, regional fundraiser for Devon says
“Many of the residents that come to us have been street homeless and to help them to settle into life at Amber we give them welcome packs of toiletries. This includes soap, shower gel, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrush etc. By ordering these through In Kind Direct we are able to make significant savings which supports our sustainability as a charity and ensures that we are making the most out of the funding that we receive.”
