Why your help is needed

With the cost-of-living crisis worse than ever, homeless young people are seeing their futures snatched from them. Young people are being hit hard with high inflation rates, meaning many can’t afford food. About one-third of young people cannot access the food needed for normal growth and a healthy lifestyle.

Be the turning point

Simon's story

After leaving the care system, Simon found himself homeless and alone in an adult world, barely able to scrape together enough money to survive.

“I’d go hungry multiple times a week. I felt so alone, cold and scared.”

But thanks to the safety, stability, and life-changing support provided by Centrepoint, Simon has made huge strides to independence and is currently attending college and finally feeling optimistic about his future.
