Christmas 2017 Hero Half Block 2

The cold numbed me to the core. My body shook constantly. I ended up getting frostbite in one of my toes.

When her mum died and the arguments with her dad risked spiralling into violence, Abi had nowhere to go and no one to turn to. She felt her only choice was to sleep on the streets. Anywhere felt safer than home. Abi swapped one nightmare for another. With just the clothes on her back to protect her at the coldest time of year, she was totally unprepared for the dangerous reality of sleeping rough. "The cold numbed me to the core. My body shook constantly. I ended up getting frostbite in one of my toes." 16,000 young people will be at risk of homelessness this Christmas. Please donate today and help a homeless young person like Abi. Please give what you can today.

77p Of Every Pound Orange

76p in every £1 we spend goes directly to supporting young people now and investing to make sure more homeless young people get support tomorrow.

Young People Helped Since 1969 Orange

88% of the young people Centrepoint supports move on positively. We couldn't do it without you.

 

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.
