The Duke of Cambridge backs the setting-up of a helpline for young people facing homelessness as The Independent launches its Christmas appeal to help the charity Centrepoint

Quote:
The Duke of Cambridge has told Independent readers they have “the chance to save young lives” as he issued a special message to mark the start of this website’s Christmas Appeal to combat youth homelessness in the UK.

For the appeal, The Independent is partnering with Centrepoint, the youth homeless charity of which Prince William is patron, to help launch a helpline for 16- to 25-year-olds who find themselves either homeless or at risk of homelessness.

Prince William today thanked Evening Standard readers for their “incredible” support as our Christmas Appeal, in aid of Centrepoint’s Young and Homeless Helpline, smashed the £1 million barrier in record time.

To mark the fundraising milestone the Duke of Cambridge welcomed former Centrepoint residents to Kensington Palace for a photoshoot.

“As Centrepoint’s patron the Duke has heard countless stories of how homelessness can blight young lives,” said a Palace spokesman.

“The support for this project so far is incredible as it means young people can get the help they need when they most need it. Thank you.”

Shooting pictures of Prince William in his own front garden at Kensington Palace would be a dream commission for any photographer, let alone one just starting out.

For Samia Meah, 26, it is the latest step on an extraordinary journey from becoming homeless at the age of 16.

She was offered the opportunity to photograph the Duke, former Centrepoint resident Kumba Kpakima and Evening Standard proprietor Evgeny Lebedev to mark the newspaper’s Christmas Appeal for the charity’s Young & Homeless Helpline passing £1 million.

I found this on the Centrepoint website regarding their patron and his interaction with the people that he meets with at their hostels.

Quote:
In the past ten years, Prince William has met many of our young people. Sometimes cameras are there, but often they’re not – a chance for him to talk openly about their experiences and futures. We know that he has been a great inspiration to them, and to us. One of our favourite moments was during his visit to our Camberwell service in 2011 with his wife, The Duchess of Cambridge. Prince William was snapped doing the now infamous ‘swag dance’ with young person Vanessa! He regularly meets the Centrepoint Parliament across our services, taking time to listen to their experiences and learn about what Centrepoint is doing to support them.

From yesterday

Centrepoint chief executive Seyi Obakin said the Duke often paid unreported visits to residents and staff: “The campaign would not have been nearly as successful without the Duke.

"He stuck his neck out and said it’s rotten and awful that youth homelessness is still happening in a country like ours."

Prince William today launched the Centrepoint Helpline as it was hailed a “major step” towards ending youth homelessness.

He joined Evening Standard proprietor Evgeny Lebedev at the service’s central London HQ, listening in to one of the first calls and chatting to staff and volunteers.

The helpline - the first national Freephone service for 16 to 25-year-olds facing homelessness - is a reality thanks to Evening Standard readers.

Our Young and Homeless Helpline appeal, run alongside The Independent and the i newspaper, has raised £3.25 million to fund the service.

Prince William hosted a glamorous night at his palace home on Thursday – to reward those who are helping to turn the tide against homelessness.

The third annual Centrepoint Awards honor the contributions of seven young people for their achievements in areas including education, sports and personal development. The black-tie affair was held at Kensington Palace, where William lives with wife Kate and their kids, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

Like his late mother Princess Diana, William adopted Centrepoint as a key cause – it was one of his first patronages taken on in 2005.

The snapshot survey, released by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government, estimated 4,134 people slept rough in 2016, up 16% on the previous year’s figure.

Prince William was joined by Emilia Clarke and Jonathan Ross for the third annual Centrepoint Awards at Kensington Palace. During a moving speech, he spoke of his "frustration" at the homelessness crisis in Britain.
