103,000* young people face homelessness in the UK. As we work from home, they are still out there surviving COVID-19 on their own.
For many, self-isolation can mean a time of discomfort. But for Britain's homeless young people, it can mean much worse.
This global pandemic hitting the UK means EYH charities now face extraordinary costs just to keep services staffed and young people healthy. We are desperately concerned that the COVID19 crisis will prevent our services from running and leave young people unsupported, without food or worse.
Please donate whatever you can to help us keep vital services running.
