Your donation could help give homeless young people a safe place to live, and support them into education or a job. Not only will you be helping to change young lives, but you'll also help us create a society without youth homelessness.

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.

Young people sleeping rough is a shocking and visible problem. But the problem of youth homelessness in the UK isn’t going away – in fact it’s getting worse.
