The Centrepoint charity is asking for your help as they attempt to rebuild one of their most used hostels. The Ealing branch is now in a state of disrepair and in need of a huge makeover to rebuild the hostel and continue to help young people’s lives.
Centrepoint is looking to raise just over half a million pounds to make a full repair of the Ealing hostel, which is a huge focal point of local vulnerable people who need a safe place to stay when their options are few.
Service Manger of the Ealing hostel, Dione John-Baptiste, said -
We’re incredibly proud of all the young people we’ve helped over the years to find jobs, places in education and homes of their own. But as more and more come through, it’s increasingly difficult to provide a positive space they can respect as their own. To become independent young people need a place they can feel at home – not part of an institution. Please help us make these vital repairs. Every penny will bring us closer to ensuring the Ealing hostel continues helping young people long into the future.
The Ealing hostel is home to up to 18 young people at a time, but has become run down and is in need of structural repairs throughout the building. Let’s hope everyone can pull together to help provide young people with a safe place stay, alongside access to education, employment and to move on to independent living.
