Thousands of young people don’t know where they’ll sleep tonight.
This is no life for a young person.

While we look forward to a new year full of hope and promise, many homeless young people have learnt not to look forward to anything. Many have never opened the door to a loving home. They’ve never fallen asleep feeling safe. And right now, they are scared, alone and in danger.

Almost 136,000 young people have faced homelessness this year.

Will you make this winter 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?

Mia's Story

At just 17, Mia ran away from home in the dead of night, after months of escalating violence and emotional abuse. You can imagine how frightened she felt, pacing freezing streets, constantly searching for safety:

“‘It was winter and it was cold and wet. I ended up having to sleep in the park.” - Mia

Thankfully, Mia was connected to the life-changing support of Centrepoint, and no longer has to worry about where she’ll sleep each night. Instead, she can focus on building the better future she deserves. Mia has even secured a place at University to study Social Work – a testament to her own resilience and the support of our amazing Room Sponsors.
