We raise awareness and funds to combat the causes of homelessness

Story

Megan, Lily, Paul, Ben and Emilie will be sleeping out on Thursday 24th November, in support of the work of Centrepoint and the Fine & Country Foundation. The event has been created to raise awareness of the issue of youth homelessness.



Centrepoint provides a safe place to live for more than 7,800 young people, aged 16-25, every year in London and the north east of England.


But Centrepoint is more than just a room, it supports young people back into education, training and employment, provides them with health services and campaigns to influence national and local government policy affecting homeless young people.



Please help us support this amazing charity by donating even a couple of pounds.



About the charity

The Fine & Country Foundation has been created to help combat one of the largest social issues in the UK – homelessness. Last year, the Government estimated around 2,414 people sleep on the street on any one night across England, a rise of 36% over three years. Often the reasons for homelessness are misunderstood, with many blaming the individuals for poor life decisions and carelessness. The reality is: people become homeless for a whole range of complex and overlapping reasons that cannot be avoided, such as family breakdowns, mental or physical health problems or debts. Solving homelessness does not only involve putting a roof over people’s heads, it is also trying to tackle the root of the problem and asking the question: why did they became homeless in the first place? The Fine & Country Foundation is dedicated to bringing together all Fine & Country agents in over 300 locations worldwide to raise awareness of the causes of homelessness whilst supporting homeless charities.
