No young person should be skipping meals to make ends meet
Young people are struggling to afford enough food – we’ve seen a 400% rise in demand for emergency food support at Centrepoint.
Our recent research on Universal Credit cuts also reveals that young people’s mental health is suffering because of financial strain. They can’t keep up with rent payments, and they’re sacrificing funds for their education and a sustainable way out of homelessness in order to buy basic items.
Together, we can help young people at Centrepoint to get enough nutritious food, receive mental health support, and access the financial assistance that allows them to prioritise their education, preventing the homelessness cycle.
