ARE YOU HOMELESS, SOFA SURFING OR AT RISK?

Walk In Their Shoes Banner

What's it like to be young amid a growing cost-of-living crisis?

As part of Centrepoint’s campaign to end youth homelessness, we've designed an interactive decision-making quiz which asks you to step into the shoes of a homeless young person (or at risk of homelessness) based on one of three potential stories, and spend a set monthly allowance based on the Universal Credit rate for under 25s.

You’ll be tasked with paying expenses such as bills, food and rent, whilst having to micromanage issues like mental health, nutrition, education and work. These scenarios and outcomes have been designed using the research the Policy team has conducted on how cost of living physically and mentally affects the health of homeless young people aged 16-25.

 

We want you to take up the challenge and raise awareness of youth homelessness by playing the quiz and sharing with your family and friends!
