Coles Solicitors are really pleased to announce that our nominated charity for 2018 is SASH who work on preventing youth homelessness across York, North Yorkshire & East Yorkshire.
Following up on raising over £4,000 for SSAFA, the armed forces charity, through our clients in 2017, our employees have voted in favour of SASH to work with this year.
We are privileged to have offices and work in some truly beautiful locations including York, Harrogate, Northallerton and the whole of the Yorkshire Dales, not necessarily places you would associate with homelessness, but behind the tourism facade, youth homelessness exists which is why SASH offer nightstops, lodgings and education to try and break the cycle of homelessness amongst 16 to 25 year olds.
Often the use of their short term NightStop service coincides with family or relationship breakdown or being evicted from their current accommodation due to financial hardship and so they offer a valuable service at a real time of crisis to their users as well as supporting young people longer term through lodging services and education to ensure they can re-establish themselves and have a brighter future.
Our Conveyancing solicitors acted in over 1000 property transfers in 2017 and were key advocates for SASH to be supported by the Coles team and our customers this year. All our property customers are invited to make a donation to SASH and the firm as a whole will be working on fundraising and education to support their good work. Alex Spurr, Director and Head of our Wills, Probate & Trust team has signed up for the York Sleepout 2018 on the 9th March where he will be sleeping rough overnight to help raise awareness.

We will be sure to keep you updated about SASH throughout the year and for those who want to find out more about them, or ways you can get involved in supporting SASH, their website can be found here.
