This Christmas, 18,000 young people aged 16-25 will find themselves homeless, or at risk of homelessness.
That's why eve Sleep are supporting Centrepoint this December.
This winter, Centrepoint has teamed up with eve Sleep to give homeless young people a future. From 1-24 December, eve will donate £15 to Centrepoint for every mattress they sell, helping us to support vulnerable young people by giving them the practical and emotional support they need to find a job and live independently.
Once a young person has a safe place to call their own in a Centrepoint service, they're able to access support with education and their health. This means they'll have all the tools they need to build a bright future for themselves and move towards independence.
93% of homeless young people who've slept rough think no one cares. With your kind donations, we can provide support to start their futures.
This Christmas around 18,000 young people will be homeless or at risk of homelessness. Without a home, caring family, or close knit circle of friends, many of them will be desperately lonely and believe no one cares.
You lose hope, that’s what’s happening to young people. Especially at Christmas you need to give them the confidence not to give up, that there are people around you.
Ben will never forget the Christmas Day he ended up in hospital seriously ill. To make matters worse, a relative visited him and told him he couldn't go home. He's never been back. Ben left hospital with nowhere to go. He had no choice but to spend long dark nights on a park bench.
When Ben got a call telling him he had a room, he was motivated to take every opportunity Centrepoint offered him to improve his future. "I got a call saying I had a place in a hostel on 9 January. I’ll never forget the date."
Today, Ben lives independently and is looking forward to pursuing his engineering dreams. None of this would have been possible without your kind support.
This Christmas, thousands of young people will be homeless or at risk of being homeless. Your donation can give young people like Ben and many others the chance to leave homelessness behind for good.
Your donation will give them the chance to learn important life skills to help them move on to live independently like budgeting, cooking, and cleaning.
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.
