A family breakdown threw Mark’s world into chaos. A successful student, Mark became depressed and dropped out of university. With no where to go and no one to turn to he ended up sleeping rough under a local viaduct.
"On rare occasions I would sleep but usually I would try and stay awake.”
Mark was referred to Centrepoint where he was given a safe, warm room and support for his mental health issues.
“Centrepoint are helping you to get back on your feet and make a new story for yourself”
For so many young people like Mark, coming to Centrepoint is the turning point they need to leave the trauma of homelessness behind. But as we face what could be the worst homelessness crisis in our 50-year history, thousands more young lives are at risk. They urgently need your help so please sponsor a room today.
Centrepoint is the UK's leading youth homelessness charity. Together with our partners, we support more than 14,000 homeless young people each year. We provide accommodation, mental health support and life skills to get vulnerable young people back into education, training and employment. We want to end youth homelessness in the UK.
Centrepoint estimates that last Christmas over 23,000 young people approached their council as they were homeless or at risk of homelessness and due to COVID-19 we expect it will be even higher this year.
