Our Current Charities
City Hearts was founded with the aim to help and support vulnerable women who wish to be free of life controlling issues such as addiction and eating disorders, or survivors of human trafficking.
Human trafficking is the fastest growing international crime and one of the largest sources of income for organised crime, and it’s happening to men, women and children in the UK. City Hearts link with the Police, Home Office and Salvation Army to care for each survivor, helping them begin the journey to overcome their trauma and equipping them with the practical tools to live independently. Survivors are shown respect and love as they start to rebuild their lives.

We all remember how tough it is being a teenager, but through our work in education training school leavers how to market themselves, we have seen for ourselves the unprecedented pressure today’s teens face. From the airbrushed perfection presented in the media to cyber bullying and sexting, no wonder self-harm, anxiety and depression is at record levels. Fortunately, we came across the brilliant award-winning team at Golddigger Trust, a charity working with thousands of young people around issues of self-esteem and sexual exploitation in South Yorkshire and across the UK.
Their team of youth work specialists have developed innovative and creative projects to work with young people, showing them their true value and worth as a unique individual.

Christians Against Poverty
Many, probably most of us, have been in debt at one time or another, but we can’t imagine debt so bad that it would make us feel like I couldn’t go on.
John Kirkby, charismatic founder of Christians Against poverty has been there. A hugely successful financier with all the trappings, John lost everything: house, wife, financial resources, but has fought back from nothing to bring hope to those similarly trapped in a spiral of debt using all the skills he learned on the “other side of the fence”.
The only company to be twice nominated “Best small UK company to work for”, CAP is one amazing charity with a massive vision, powerful emotional marketing and incredible team based in Bradford.
