Whatever the future holds, a gift in your Will can help make sure Centrepoint will always be here to provide homeless young people with the support they need to turn their life around. It’s a wonderful way for the care you have shown homeless young people throughout your life to live on.
We promise to always work with young people to give them the tailored support they need to move on from homelessness for good.
We promise to never give up on any young person who needs us.
We promise to never stop working towards an end to youth homelessness.
A gift in your Will helps us keep our promise by providing the safety, recovery, education and support a young person needs to move on from homelessness and turn their lives around.
Keisha* was 16 when she came to Centrepoint, after her relationship with her foster family had broken down.
Life had become difficult when Keisha reached her teens; she was beginning to rebel and disengage from school. Things deteriorated, and eventually she left her foster family. At first, Keisha felt rejected, but since being with Centrepoint she has been able to develop perspective and understanding. After moving into Centrepoint, Keisha secured an apprenticeship and traineeship with one of the top national banks. She’s done so well that she’s since been taken on as a full-time member of staff
Keisha has a bright future ahead of her. She’s thriving in her career and has recently secured a home of her own. In December 2020, she received a Centrepoint Award in recognition of her achievements.
In years to come, a gift in your Will could give someone like Keisha the strength to escape their past – and build a future they never imagined.
