Winter Challenge to Change Young Lives

2021 has been another tough year for us all. But, the impact on young people has been dramatic. As the largest youth homelessness charity in the South East, we've continued to see a 25% increase in the number of young people presenting as homeless. But in addition, we're seeing a crisis in young people's emotional wellbeing and mental health.

All of our services are stretched (supported housing, counselling services, youth advice centres) and in some locations, we've had to close waiting lists due to unprecented demand.

We need your help to enable us to do more for the young people who desperately need our support. Why not take on a winter challenge, as big or small, as you like and know that you are making a difference to a vulnerable young person near you.
