Active Training World are delighted to announce a partnership with Centrepoint as our official Charity Partner for 2021

We have come together with Centrepoint, the country’s leading youth homelessness charity, to offer you the chance for a free race place, tech t-shirt, support, and to be part of a fundraising movement that will play a significant role in helping end youth homelessness.

Even before the pandemic youth homelessness had reached crisis point: over 120,000 young people were homeless or at risk of homelessness in the twelve months leading up to March 2020.

Since the first lockdown, calls to Centrepoint’s Helpline increased by a third, and growing numbers of young people have been unable to work and face eviction.

The past year has taught us all how important it is to have a safe place to call home. But for so many young people, home isn’t a safe place. Many face violence, abuse, family breakdown and problems with mental health and become homeless because it is safer to leave home than to stay.

Many young people sleep rough every night, but thousands more go to extreme lengths to avoid the dangers of rough sleeping; staying on friend’s sofas or on night buses, or even hurting themselves to stay in hospital or committing a crime to stay in a police station; keeping the problem out of sight, and often, out of mind.

Last year Centrepoint supported 14,000 homeless young people with more than just a safe place to stay. To get them ready to live independently, Centrepoint offers mental health support and provides training and education in everything from basic life skills to supporting young people applying for university. The charity also campaigns to end youth homelessness for good. We know there are thousands of vulnerable young people that need this support.

We have joined forces with Centrepoint to help make a difference and you can play a role by fundraising. Sign up for a free charity place in your chosen event and pledge to raise money for their incredible work. You’ll receive dedicated fundraising support from the Centrepoint team and your very own Centrepoint t-shirt to wear with pride during your event.

Your support could be the turning point for a homeless young person. You could give a young person a safe place to call home and the help they need to rebuild their lives. Join us in the race to end youth homelessness today.
