By sponsoring a room at Centrepoint you can help a homeless young person leave homelessness behind for good. For £12 a month can you help save lives and change lives?
The UK has a growing youth homelessness issue that. The problem isn't going away; in fact it is getting worse. Our recent work shows 103,000 young people across England and Wales approached their local authorities for help because they are homeless or at risk of homelessness.
When you sponsor a room at Centrepoint, you’ll receive a welcome pack including a Centrepoint keyring and regular updates about the young person staying in your room.
For just 40p a day your room at Centrepoint will:
• Provide a warm, safe space where a young person can stay with Centrepoint for up to two years, or until they are ready to move on and lead independent lives
• Support them with counselling and practical advice so that they can rebuild their confidence and start to look forward to their future again
• Give young people the skills they need to find and stay in a job
• Teach young people basic skills like cooking and managing their money, which they’ll need to become independent
Homeless young people often resort to desperate measures to survive. There is a vital need to get them off the streets and into a warm, safe room that can become their home. Your room will be more than a roof over a young person’s head - it is a safe haven where they can gain access to education, counselling, apprenticeships and functional skills until they are ready to move on.
