Help a homeless young person have a chance for a brighter future this Christmas
“I never thought I would experience being homeless, but it can happen to anyone. It’s a frightening, downward spiral that can just suck you up. Looking back, without The Sanctuary I wouldn’t be in the position I am now - I’ve got my own place and I am working full time.” Will, 26 years old
For those young people sleeping rough this Christmas, worries are not on what gifts to buy, but where they will sleep tonight and whether they will be dry and safe.
Please donate today to help us continue to support homeless young people get back on track. Every young person deserves a safe place to go.
Homelessness in Brighton & Hove has more than doubled since 2011 and the City now has the third largest homeless population in the UK. (Source: Homeless Link, ‘Rough sleeping – explore the data’, 2015)
Here is how your donation will help make a difference:
£5 could pay for a young person to have a shower, wash their clothes and prepare and eat a hot meal.
£20 could provide a young person with new shoes or a shirt and tie to attend a job interview/wear on the first day at their new job.
£200 could train a volunteer to support young homeless people.
£500 could pay for the centre to be open for a day.
