My mum died and my stepdad was a drinker. He made me do things I didn't want to do. I had to leave.
I'm a student now...my life has changed.
This is why I'm asking for your help.
When you become a room sponsor for £12 a month, you help homeless young people like Lianne into a safe, warm room. But your donation doesn't stop there. It will help provide the mental health support needed to deal with trauma and broken confidence, the life skills needed to live independently and the learning to get into education or a job.
Centrepoint does not take your donation for granted - it's too important. We support more than 9,000 homeless young people a year...but we know hundreds of thousands of more need help. In fact, we found out that 150,000 young people asked their local council for help with homelessness last year alone. We need to do more.
Every £1 donated saves the public purse £2.40. This means the services we provide reduce demand on health, social and judicial government services, among others.
76p in every £1 we spend goes directly to supporting young people now and investing to make sure more homeless young people get support tomorrow.
Without your generosity, we couldn't continue helping young people leave homelessness behind them.
