Education Cubed is proud to announce that it has recently committed to supporting young homeless people through a monthly room sponsor scheme run by the charity Centrepoint.
Thousands of people contribute to make Centrepoint the UK’s leading youth homelessness charity – supporters, volunteers, staff and ambassadors all play a huge part in helping to create change. The charity operates services seven days a week, every week of the year – even on Christmas day. Staff and partners contribute to helping over 10,000 young people every year, whatever their personal needs or situation.
Homeless people are twice as likely to die as their housed peers, which is why it’s vital to get them off the streets and into a warm, safe room that can become their home. The ‘Sponsor a Room’ initiative gives young people a roof over their heads and a safe haven to gain access to counselling, professional skills, education, guidance and apprenticeships.
Education Cubed shares the charity’s ethos of supporting young children and adults through access to job searches and CV writing, higher education workshops run in conjunction with universities, work experience, traineeships and job skills workshops, which all help young people to reach their full potential in both their professional and personal lives.
Education Cubed MD, Jo Redfern said, ‘Education Cubed is a proud sponsor of this inspirational charity. Through our charitable donations to Centrepoint we want to help some of the most vulnerable people in our society. We have nothing but admiration for the charity’s work and hope that our donations can contribute to improving young people’s lives in some small way.’
