Gompels help youth charity Snow-Camp ‘turn lives around’


We are proud to support Switch180 charity and their 2 programmes Snow Camp and Stop.Breathe.Think.

Working at the indoor snow domes across the UK, young people learn how to ski or snowboard alongside taking part in life skills training and mental health workshops. Young people can gain new qualifications and have access to apprenticeships and volunteering opportunities through Snow Camp’s support. Launched in 2003 in London, our support over the years has helped the charity to expand Snow Camp in to 3 new regions: Scotland, the Midlands and the North West. Since 2003, Snow Camp have supported 15,466 young people, delivered 5263 life skills sessions and worked with 1045 youth organisations.

Charity founder, Dan Charlish said: 

“We’ve worked with Sam and the Gompels team for many years. Together we have provided vital support to thousands of young people. The company’s commitment to corporate social responsibility is wonderful and they put charitable giving at the heart of their company, giving back to those who need the help the most. Thank you for all your do to support us!”

Snow Camp helps young people to gain industry recognised qualifications


Giving young people positive opportunities can turn their lives around. Snow-Camp's #Switch180 campaign aims to highlight the critical importance of supporting our young people at this key time in their lives, and shows that we must do more as a society to provide the right opportunities for young people today, whether that's through Snow-Camp's programmes or otherwise.

Learning new skills such as snow-boarding helps these young people to gain confidence

Gaining recognition is key to the success of these young inner city people

Snow-Camp conducted their own research in partnership with YouGov in December 2017, which showed that:

71% of young people feel they need more support from society to help them to achieve their potential.

76% of young people believe that the lack of positive opportunities puts young people at an increased risk of falling into crime and antisocial behaviour.

The research proves that we must do more to provide positive activities and opportunities for young people – this can make all the difference to the direction their lives take. Positive opportunities such as Snow-Camp can motivate and inspire young people to achieve their potential, reducing the risk of falling into crime and antisocial behaviour and inspiring them towards rewarding and successful futures. The statistics make it all too clear why their work is needed.

Snow-Camp young person, Hamza Alkebida said:

“Through Snow-Camp I have gained so many work skills and life skills and I'm now a full time ski and snowboarding instructor. I want to show young people from estates like mine that they too can achieve great things with the right opportunity.”
