It might be the first good night's sleep they've had in months. Your donation could make sure homeless young people have a safe, warm place to stay this Christmas and help end youth homelessness in the UK.
From family breakdown to rough sleeping, homelessness is tough on mental health – especially at Christmas. Your donation could mean a young person has access to mental health support.
Your gift will not only help provide a warm, safe room for up to a year, but it will also go towards providing vital support such as functional skills workshops, and access to our sport engagement programmes.
93% of homeless young people who've slept rough think no one cares.* Simply having a Christmas dinner together and joining in group activities can mean the world to a homeless young person like Ben. With your help this Christmas, we can provide young people with the support they need to start a positive future.
At Centrepoint, futures start for young people like Ben. Your gift can help give a young person:
86 per cent of Centrepoint young people move on positively.
With our partners, we support more than 10,000 homeless young people each year.
We save the public purse £20,000 for every young person we work with.
Homeless young people often resort to desperate measures to survive – and your gift will help provide more than a roof over a young person’s head. It can help offer a safe place where they can gain access to education, counselling and apprenticeships until they're ready to move on.
We use models and change the names of the young people we work with to protect their identity, however, all stories are true and as told by the young person.
