For the past twelve years Deutsche Bank has supported Streetsmart by covering all of the campaign’s administration costs to ensure that every penny raised goes to help the homeless. Half of the funds raised each year support projects that prevent youth homelessness in line with the bank’s youth engagement programme, Born to Be [www.db.com/uk/borntobe]. The bank also engages its employees to act as campaign advocates within their networks. As a leading global investment bank, Deutsche Bank is committed to tackling key social challenges and invests around €80 million each year in projects to support disadvantaged communities across the world.

Bookmark is a content agency now owned by WPP whose origins were as a pioneering, independent publisher in Soho. It was one of the initial founders of StreetSmart and continues to provide valuable office space, creative and administrative staff, and produces all the marketing and publicity literature as well as digital expertise associated with StreetSmart.
The Evening Standard and their restaurant critic Fay Maschler were instrumental in promoting StreetSmart in London from its conception in 1998 and continue to champion the cause to this day.
“The StreetSmart scheme is simplicity itself to administer and, in my experience, those who eat out during the festive months, often celebrating their own good fortune, find the modest £1 donation a painless way to give a helping hand. If life in the streets is improved, it impinges beneficially on everyone. I know that when I am out reviewing restaurants for the Evening Standard, I am always pleased to see the StreetSmart card on the table.” Fay Maschler, Restaurant Critic, Evening Standard
