Your regular gift could help us answer the continuing surge in calls to our Helpline, as thousands more young people are left homeless and at risk in the deepening economic crisis.
Your regular gift could help meet the rising demand for counselling and emotional support services for the vulnerable young people in our care.
The full impact of the Coronavirus crisis is yet to come. The ‘cost’ of lockdown will be record levels of youth unemployment just as rent and credit amnesties come to an end. Family breakdown is also on the rise, just as many young people in low income jobs are about to lose what little security they have.
How your vital regular gift could help through the coming months:
The pandemic has meant suspending the fundraising events that contribute millions to our services. As our income declines, the demand for our services rises, and now we face our toughest year ever. Young people urgently need our ongoing support. Your regular gift could be life-changing for a vulnerable young person in the difficult months ahead.
“When the country is in economic decline, young people are one of the groups that are always hit the hardest. Their difficulties will only increase as this crisis continues in the coming months and years. Many thousands of vulnerable young people will suffer from being jobless and homeless, so we must keep them safe. That’s what we’ve always done and will continue to do, but we can’t do this without support or resources. Starting a monthly gift from today could really help us make a difference.”Matt Carlisle, Centrepoint Service Manager
