Bedford Square Festival is proud to be partnered with Centrepoint, the UK’s leading youth homelessness charity, and will be fundraising for the charity throughout the Festival. This is our second year partnering with Centrepoint who’s aim is to end youth homelessness in the UK.
In 2016/17 an estimated 86,000 young people across the UK approached their local authority for help as they were homeless or at risk of homelessness, 10,500 of these in London alone.
Last year Centrepoint supported 9,200 homeless young people aged between 16-25, providing them not only with a safe place to call home but with holistic support including physical and mental health care as well as education and training equipping them with the skills to become independent members of society with a home and a job.
Through this year’s partnership Bedford Square Festival is looking to raise awareness and vital funds to support the work of Centrepoint in order to give homeless young people a future.
Please do consider giving today and joining us in supporting this fantastic cause.
