This month we are campaigning to save our young people's Drop In and advice centre in Andover which is under threat of closure due to cuts in our funding. Since The Junction opened in 2004 it has helped thousands of the most vulnerable young people in Andover escape the nightmare of being homeless, supporting them back into a home, education and work. Now our centre is facing closure after we lost our local Council funding leaving us with a financial hole of £56,000 for 2017. Read the full story and sign the petition to show your support here.

The Junction makes a real difference to young peoples lives. Young people like Jane who found herself with nowhere to go after being forced to leave her family home. Click here to read Jane's story.

STOP PRESS!

Thank you to everyone who has given to our Christmas Campaign. We have had a fantastic response and money is still coming in. These vital funds will be going towards preventing homelessness in Salisbury. And it's not too late to contribute - help us to make a difference here.
A huge congratulations to Gina Vickers who was awarded an Inspire Award yesterday.

Gina our Learning Disabilities Service Manager, was presented the award in recognition for her tireless work and dedication within the Learning Disabilities service. She has been fundamental in helping people like Tony who found himself unable to cope after the death of his mother. Read Tony's story here.

Make 2017 a year to remember!
 The Big Sleep in back! We are asking people to dig out their sleeping bags and warm clothing on the 3rd March and spend the night with other like minded people, giving them a taste of what it is like to sleep rough this time of year while raising vital funds for our charity's Drop In Centre in the city. We need your help to do this please sign up today.
