Thousands of young people don’t know where they’ll sleep tonight.
This should never be Christmas.
As we look forward to a cosy Christmas with loved ones, there are many young people dreading the dark winter nights ahead. They have no money, no more sofas to sleep on, and no one to turn to for help. No young person should be left to struggle alone, and the isolation of homelessness hits even harder at Christmas.
Almost 136,000 young people have faced homelessness this year.
Will you make this Christmas the turning point, by sponsoring a room at Centrepoint? Your kindness could give a young person a stable home – often for the first time in their life. Instead of worrying about what to eat or where to sleep, they can start to put their lives back together, safe in the knowledge that we’ll be there for as long as they need us.
Of course, every young person is given the support of an expert team of adults too, who they can work with to overcome any past trauma or worries for the future. Looking to the new year, a room at Centrepoint gives a young person the breathing space they need to pursue education and career goals, so they can build an independent life free from homelessness. New lives begin with room sponsorship, will you start your monthly gift today?
