Whether you’re a student or a teacher, there are lots of ways you can get involved with fundraising at school. 

And we've got lots of great ideas, tips and advice to get your school started.

Youth homelessness is an issue that links well with the national curriculum. And with your school's help, we can support more homeless young people look towards a more positive future.

Schoolchildren hold up Centrepoint logos and buckets.
