Newry branch have already raised over £600 and already The Body Shop have raised over £156,000 to for the help End Youth Homelessness campaign.

Last year over 110,000 young people, aged between 16-25 years in the UK were homeless or are at risk of homelessness. Some facing serious danger on the streets. Without the right help at the right time, this downward spiral lasts through adulthood. It is estimated that 50% of homeless adults become homeless before the age of 21. But there’s still hope. With the right opportunities and support, homeless young people can turn their lives around and build successful futures, which is why The Body Shop and End Youth Homelessness are challenging you to SLEEP OUT (or sleep in) to raise awareness and vital funds to help vulnerable young people find a safe, secure place to call home.

Never before have small, individual actions been so powerful. Let’s join forces to end youth homelessness and give young people a brighter future.

The challenge is part of a wider partnership between The Body Shop and End Youth Homelessness who have joined forces this Christmas to ensure the most vulnerable people across the UK & Ireland get the help they desperately need to secure a home of their own.

The Body Shop will help fund a dedicated housing team that will help young women and mothers between the ages of 16 to 25, move into their own homes, as well as provide bursary and bond schemes to overcome the prohibitive costs to securing a tenancy.
