Never give up on young people

It’s a shocking truth that 1 in 52 young people are homeless, or at risk of homelessness in the UK today.

Tonight, hundreds more young people are in danger on our streets. They’re a prime target for grooming, exploitation and criminal gangs. Then there is the mental toll that homelessness takes on young minds, with many suffering from sleep deprivation, depression and anxiety. Some turn to drugs to cope with the grim reality.

Your gift today could support a young person so that their setbacks don’t hold them back forever.
