Every year, thousands of young people across London become homeless because of family breakdown, domestic abuse, poverty, experiences of violence, or war and persecution in their home country.
The homelessness crisis is clear to everyone living and working in and around King's Cross but beneath it lies a much bigger – and largely invisible – set of issues affecting young people struggling to get by.
So from October 1st through to World Homeless Day on October 10th we are partnering with Argent and the thriving community of organisations in the area for a 10 day takeover to raise awareness of and funds for youth homelessness.
Do your bit for World Homeless Day.
We are bringing the community of King's Cross together to take on youth homelessness and you can all play your part.
Do - Organise an activity or opportunity for young people at our centre or your workplace.
Discuss - Raise awareness by hosting a talk or event about youth homelessness at your workplace with our staff and young people.
See below for more information and stay tuned to @nhyouthcentre and #NHYCTakeover during October for the latest.
