Life is Strange 2 and Centrepoint team up to raise awareness of youth homelessnessLivestream, social and video will promote charity’s essential work
In Life is Strange 2, teenager Sean Diaz and his brother Daniel are torn from their home and forced to live rough. Now homeless, they face danger, illness and hostility - their very lives are at risk.
But while Life is Strange 2 is a videogame, these challenges will be real for as many as 22,000 young people in the UK this Christmas. To raise awareness of this important issue among our fans, we’ve partnered with Centrepoint - the UK’s top youth homeless charity.
Centrepoint delivers critical help for people aged between 16-25 who are homeless, or facing future homelessness. It provides housing and support to thousands of young people across the UK each year, and offers practical and emotional guidance that can help them find a job and live independently.
It also runs a free telephone, email and online chat service for any 16-25 year olds who are homeless, or worried about becoming homeless. And its work is needed now more than ever - since 2010, there has been a 165% increase in rough sleeping in the UK.
In short, youth homelessness continues to be a vital issue, and we’ll be promoting Centrepoint’s ongoing campaigns through our Life is Strange channels during December.
We’re also holding a special Life is Strange 2 livestream on 3 December, 2019, featuring Influencer Lomadiah at 4pm GMT. It’s sure to be fascinating viewing for fans - and any donations during the event will go to Centrepoint to fund their vital work.
