Barnsdales and Centrepoint – helping homeless young people to build a better future
The Barnsdales Group has agreed to support Centre point as their 2019 chosen charity.
At Barnsdales, we believe that no young person in our society should be homeless or at risk of homelessness. That’s why we’ve chosen to support the work of leading youth homelessness charity Centrepoint.
What causes youth homelessness?
Violence, abuse, family breakdown and problems with mental health – young people often become homeless because it’s safer to leave home than to stay.
Last year 103,000 young people asked for help with homelessness.
Who are Centrepoint?
Centrepoint is the leading youth homelessness charity. Together with their partners, they support 10,000 homeless and at risk young people every year.
Centrepoint knows that it takes more than a place to stay for young people to leave homelessness behind for good. They provide homeless young people with accommodation, health support and life skills to get them back into education, training and employment.
