A youth housing charity is on the road to further success after being given extra exposure by a Sheffield logistics business.

DBL Logistics on Tinsley Park Road has added the logo of charity Roundabout, which provides assistance to young people aged 16 to 25, to some of its vehicles.

Roundabout helps around 150 homeless young people in Sheffield each day.

The link-up with the logistics firm comes as Roundabout prepares to launch a new walk-in prevention service near Howden House in Sheffield to provide advice and information on housing and family-related issues.

Amy Casbolt, fundraising co-ordinator at Roundabout, said the charity was grateful for the support.

“The support DBL Logistics is providing will help raise awareness of Roundabout across South Yorkshire, which is fantastic.

“Our funding from Government continues to be cut, so support from private businesses is crucial,” she said.

“We are excited to soon be opening our brand new prevention service, but still need the support of local people, businesses and groups to raise funds and help us to prevent youth homelessness.”
