Charity of the month: Centrepoint

Charity of the month: Centrepoint

Our charity of the month for January is Centrepoint. Each month we choose a charity from our charity partners to donate a portion of the proceeds from every car we scrap.

Centrepoint is the UK’s leading youth homelessness charity supporting 16-25 year olds impacted by homelessness.

At Centrepoint, a bed is just the start. Their support model covers mental health and wellbeing, a pathway back into education and training and opportunities which inspire and engage young people. With Centrepoint’s support, 88% of those they help move on from their services positively.

The charity offers support to over 14,000 young people each year. However, they are facing their biggest crisis ever. With the Coronavirus pandemic and young homelessness on the rise, there’s now 23,000 lives at risk.

We have chosen to support Centrepoint at a time when they need our help more than ever. Our charity of the month runs alongside our donate my car scheme, so if you have decided 2021 is the year to scrap your old car, you can also additionally choose to donate some or all of the proceeds to one of our chosen charities.

Every car we scrap throughout this January will help us provide funds to Centrepoint.
