Let's Close the Gap Together What we've been up to: We have a Christmas Appeal that aims to raise awareness and funds for care-experienced young people starting out in the world of work. Closing the Gap is a hardship fund for young people struggling to face up to the challenges of adulthood and independence. Especially during the cold winter months, care leavers are faced with a real decision between heating and eating. Our supporters enable young people to pay their bills, travel to work and fully focus on the task and day ahead of them instead of wondering where their next meal comes from. You can also check out our annual report here.
