Find out how your donation can change young lives

Published: Monday 9th June 2014

Homelessness is on the increase and young people are at particular risk. In fact, the number of young people sleeping rough in London has more than doubled over the past three years

At Coram we believe no young person should be without a secure and permanent home. That’s why we’re appealing for you to help a young person like Dale.

Dale ended up homeless after being thrown out. The relationship with his parents broke down and Dale came back one day to find that they had changed the locks.  Without a place to stay, Dale resorted to bus hopping. It was the only way he could think of staying sheltered for the night.

 

How you can help

Thankfully for people like Dale Coram’s Supported Housing project not only provides a safe place to live but the chance to make a fresh start.

With his Coram support worker, Dale is now motivated and positive about the future and has been able to find work and begin to rebuild his relationship with his parents.

“I find Coram very helpful. The schemes they do try to get people active and into work.… It’s the best thing that’s ever happened to me. Definitely.”

Dale could have easily ended up on the streets with no prospects and no hope. However, with your support, young people like Dale can build themselves a brighter future.
