Right now in the UK, over 100,000 young people are facing homelessness. Rising rents, unstable work and a hidden housing crisis has led to a 165% increase in rough sleeping since 2010. Many young people have gone through terrible neglect and abuse. By sponsoring a room for just 40p a day, you can help give a young person a place – somewhere to feel safe, somewhere to 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.
