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.
Rough sleeping in Manchester has more than tripled in the last five years. 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 many being at risk of exploitation. 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.

As a Centrepoint Room Sponsor, you will help us...
Abi found herself sleeping on the streets after the relationship with her family broke down. But today, after finding Centrepoint, Abi is rebuilding her life. She has a room of her own – somewhere to feel safe.
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.
Where does your donation go? What's a room like? How many people sponsor a room? All this and more can be found in our Sponsor a Room FAQs.
