Sheffield young people’s homeless charity Roundabout has launched an internet film campaign to help boost a major new £10,000 fundraising project.

Roundabout supports 150 homeless young people across the city every day, and has the only emergency hostel for young homeless people in Sheffield.

It is currently raising £10,000 to improve eight flats on St Barnabas Road in Highfield – accommodation for young people leaving the main Roundabout hostel.

And to give the campaign added impact the Roundabout team has created a film that features staff and young people speaking about the importance of the charity.

The five minute film has been uploaded to, a crowdfunding website which allows people around the world to watch online.

“The flats we need to do the work on are currently run down, with poor heating and broken furniture, so they desperately need renovating,” said fundraising coordinator Amy Casbolt.
