Whilst it has been one of the most difficult times in Centrepoint’s 50-year history, we want to celebrate the many triumphs of homeless young people and the heroic efforts of our Key Workers, who ensured that we kept all of our front line services open throughout.
In this issue, we share the fundraising efforts from supporters across the country. From people sleeping out in back gardens, designing Christmas cards, committing to running hundreds of miles, sewing face masks and live streaming gameplay and DJ sets; the list of creative activities and challenges you have taken on for us is endless.
We want to know more about you - our valuable supporters. Your feedback will go a long way in helping us to share the news and updates that you wish to hear about the most. Thank you in advance for taking the time to do this.
Mental health issues and formal diagnoses occur within 10-20% of young people not experiencing homelessness. However, the prevalence of mental health issues and formal diagnoses are even more prevalent within the population of Centrepoint young people analysed for this research.
