Centrepoint are proud to launch our partnership with Coventry Building Society. Together, we're on a mission to make a positive impact on the lives of young people in the UK.
Like us, Coventry Building Society believes every young person should have a place they can call home. We share the same vision to end youth homelessness for the next generation – that’s why we’ve joined forces to make change happen on both a national and a local scale.
We have a big ambition: to end youth homelessness
We want to ensure we end homelessness for the next generation. It's no easy feat, but it starts with a home.
When young people have a place to call home, the sense of security means they can focus on building a bright future. From better physical and mental health to relationships and a career - a safe home is the foundation from which life grows. Ending youth homelessness starts with safety and stability.
Building towards a better future
That's where our new partnership comes in. Coventry Building Society are aiming to raise £1m each year to support our work, and will be making donations based on savings activity, as well as colleague and membership funding.
These important funds will help us to further our work with homeless and at-risk young people, and help us get that crucial step further towards our goal. But our partnership is about more than just fundraising.
By working closely together and sharing expertise, including training and support for Helpline staff we will have an even more positive impact on young people.
How are we going to do it?
We're working together on this ambitious and transformational partnership to end youth homelessness. From being there during those crucial times of crisis to providing them with the practical skills they need to thrive, here's how we're helping vulnerable young people move on from homelessness and fulfil their potential.
