More than 1,000 young people are at risk of homelessness each week. Amidst the deepening cost-of-living crisis, the relentless rise in food prices and energy bills escalates the situation further. For young people without a stable home, gaining access to secure housing is becoming inconceivable. Soaring rents in the private rental sector are leaving individuals facing the torment of homelessness.
Youth charity, Henley YMCA, is helping young people overcome and alleviate these issues by providing the housing and support they need. Room Sponsor, YMCA’s flagship fundraising programme, supports more than 7,000 beds for young people each night.
The youth charity has reported that with multiple economic crises facing many, donations to their Room Sponsor programme are needed now more than ever. The need to get young individuals off the streets who are experiencing homelessness, like Lucy, continues to grow.
Henley YMCA strongly encourages those who can become Room Sponsors to do so and extend their support to these young people in need.
