All Saints’ Church Staplehurst Charity for January 2022 to March 2022
All Saints Church has chosen Centre Point to support from January 2022 to March 2022.
Centre point is a charity in the United Kingdom which provides accommodation and support to homeless people aged 16–25. Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, has been a patron of the organization since 2005; his first patronage. His mother Diana, Princess of Wales, was a patron of the organization before she died.
Homelessness and rough sleeping are threatening young people’s lives since 2010 it has increased by 141%. A common misconception is that young people create the issue of homelessness themselves. The reality is quite different. Family breakdown many reasons; new partners, drugs, religious differences and issues around sexuality proving very complex.
Centre point provides a safe haven for these vulnerable young people it helps them to become independent and choose their own pathway assisting with education, life skills, employment, access to health services, counselling for mental health and support that many young people struggle to obtain nowadays it’s not just about housing “a bed for the night “. 88% of young people move on to better positive life when leaving Centre Point.
The national crisis has severely impacted Centre Points ability to raise money for the vital services they provide and we ask you however little to kindly donate to this Charity for our young people their future.
