Sheffield United has added young people’s homeless charity Roundabout to the list of organisations it will be supporting this season.

“We received a good number of applications from a wide range of charities and it was a tough decision which ones to shortlist,” said Sheffield United’s Dave McCarthy.

“But Roundabout supports more than 150 homeless young people in Sheffield every day, providing shelter, support and life skills to help break the cycle of homelessness. Their emergency hostel is close to ‘The Lane’ and their new prevention service helps young people and families at risk of becoming homeless.

Roundabout Fundraising Co-ordinator Amy Casbolt commented: “We are delighted to have been chosen as one of the Blades’ new chosen charities. The money and awareness raised via the partnership will help us to provide vital support to young vulnerable people.”

Roundabout has the only emergency hostel in Sheffield for young homeless people aged 16 to 21.
