Sponsor A Room This Christmas

As temperatures fall, thousands of young people will have no place to stay this Christmas.

By sponsoring a room at Centrepoint for just £12 a month, you can help a young person find their place – and leave homelessness behind for good.

Why your help is needed

Living in London is getting harder. With changes to benefits, rising rents and lack of affordable housing, it is tough for many young people. In fact in the UK, rough sleeping has increased 165% since 2010. With nowhere else to go this Christmas, many young people could be sleeping on a stranger’s sofa, staying in a filthy squat or sleeping rough on the street. By sponsoring a room for just 40p a day, you can help give a young person a place; somewhere safe to sleep. A place where they can start their future.

Abi's story

Help save lives and change lives today

Homeless young people often resort to desperate measures to survive – and your room will be much more than just a roof over a young person’s head. It's a safe haven, where they can gain access to education, counselling and apprenticeships until they're ready to move on.
