Can you imagine finding yourself homeless at 18?

As a baby Angharad was abused by her parents. At just two years old, Angharad was placed in foster care. At 18 she became homeless.

“I had a roof one minute and then not the next so all of a sudden you’re homeless.”

Her turbulent upbringing left Angharad with anxiety and depression.

Thanks to kind people like you who wanted to protect children, Angharad was given supportive housing and counselling.

We know there are so many more children like Angharad that we don’t reach.

Just £5 a month could pay for emergency overnight support for a dozen young people living on the street.

You can help bring a child like Angharad in from the cold.

"The more i cried, the more they hurt me. I’ve never had a stable home, a place to call home. It doesn’t have to be a parent, home is somewhere you feel safe, no matter what happens you have your family and it’s a safe place."
