We're back with our Autumn Update newsletter, and things have certainly changed since we last spoke... Find out what we've been up to in our newsletter below, as well as your chance to win a night's stay in a top London hotel!
Please see below the digital copy of our Autumn Update for 2020.
Here you will read about Dineer, a Centrepoint resident who became a Key Worker during lockdown. Not only does her story tell of her courage working during this difficult time, but also looks to her future, as she plans to pursue her dream of starting a new business and move on from Centrepoint.
This autumn's Update also features new research: 'Locked Out', created by our policy team, highlights the impact of Coronavirus on homeless young people. As well as this key examination, we'll be introducing you to Stay:Up, an exciting new event we'll be holding in October, where we're encouraging you to host your own all-night sleep over and so much more. Plus, make sure you enter our Prize Draw for a chance to win a swanky hotel stay!
So take a look at our Autumn Update and get a glimpse of what Centrepoint has been up to this past year.
Centrepoint is continuing to source employment opportunities for young people wishing to enter the job market. We are asking corporate partners to help us create 30 or more jobs at entry/junior level across London. Could your organisation offer a role to an aspiring young person?
As you will know, the Chancellor recently announced the Kickstart scheme which offers a benefit package for organisations wishing to support young people into employment. This includes covering the cost of wages for new employees for six months at 25 hours a week on minimum wage - which can be topped up at the employer’s discrepancy.
If you are interested in finding out more about this opportunity, and would like to offer a Centrepoint young person a vacancy, please take a look at Gov.uk's Kickstart information page, as well as the Kickstart Guide for Employers, and email us below with your contact details.
Fancy a night's stay at a swanky London hotel? Our exciting prize draw gives you the chance to win a one-night stay in a gorgeous double room at The Standard Hotel in King's Cross - simply enter at the link below to be in with a chance of winning!
