Support us

As a small charity After18 relies on public support and donations to fund our work.

You can support us in the following ways:


Make a donation by clicking through to MyDonate and specifying your amount
(this is our preferred option for donations, however, if you would rather use PayPal then please go to this link).


Volunteers are crucial to the delivery of our services for young refugees. After18 has a range of volunteering opportunities for suitably skilled or experienced people to support our activities. Could you spare a few hours a week to share your skills with After18 and enrich the life of a young person?

Our current vacancies include:

Joining our mailing list

We send occasional email newsletters about the services After18 offers, information about upcoming events and ways to support our work with unaccompanied children and young refugees in Leicester. For more information and to sign up, please click here.

Buying a textbook

The students at our Supplementary School are extremely motivated but they have a very limited income and struggle to buy course textbooks. If you would like to support a young person’s education by donating a used or new text book, then please see the specific books they need by going to this link to our Amazon Wish List. You can purchase directly from the Wish List and have books sent to us as a gift. The address for deliveries is After18, 2 Saxby Street, Leicester LE2 0ND. You can also use this address to send secondhand text books, as long as they are specified on our list.

Thinking of changing mobile phone provider?

After18 uses GiffGaff for its phoneline. We find the rates are competitive and make your donations go further. If you decide to switch, please do it through our link here, as we will then receive £5, which is enough to cover our phone costs for a month. The above link can also give you more information about GiffGaff’s rates and service.
