"If you're homeless, you're never safe..."

Young lives, just like Kiera's, are at risk this winter. Tonight and every night, thousands of homeless young people will go to sleep feeling scared and alone, and as the nights draw in, the threat of danger on our streets is increasing. You could help be the turning point today, by becoming a Room Sponsor and helping a young person find safety at Centrepoint. Your monthly gifts will give a homeless young person a safe warm room to live in and real support, so they can start to turn their lives around.

why your help is needed now

Things may have started to go back to normal for many of us, but the outlook for young people is still precarious. The full impact of the pandemic continues to unfold. And with support through schemes such as furlough starting to be peeled back, the young people we work with and many more are feeling the effects of the crisis.

Kiera's Story

When family breakdown at home left Kiera* homeless at just 17, she found herself sleeping rough on the London streets. She was exhausted and vulnerable.

“When I was on the streets, I didn’t sleep, I was too scared – I just used to walk about from place to place’.

She was referred to Centrepoint, where she was given a room of her own and real support from her key worker. Slowly, she was able to rebuild her confidence and get her education back on track.

“My whole life changed…I had somewhere safe I could call my own, and real support”

 For so many young people like Kiera, coming to Centrepoint is the turning point they need to leave homelessness behind. Unfortunately, as the nights draw in, thousands more young lives are at risk. They urgently need your help, so please sponsor a room today.

 

* We sometimes use models and change the names of the young people we work with to protect their identity; however all stories are based on true experiences as told by our young people.
