The Benjamin Foundation was founded in 1994 by Richard and Vanessa Draper following the loss of their son, Benjamin, in a motorcycle accident, aged just 17.

For over 25 years, children, young people and their families across Norfolk and Suffolk have been supported by The Benjamin Foundation to overcome big challenges in their lives.

Housing and Homelessness services provide over 50,000 safe nights a year for local young people, as well as ancillary support services. The charity also delivers Childcare, Emotional Wellbeing Support, and Youth Support services.
