A young Londoner who has overcome homelessness says she has a charity to thank for transforming her life.
Sade Banks-Brown was living in hostels before she was taken in by Centrepoint - a charity supporting 16 to 25 year olds.
She's since started her own business and is working to help other young people follow in her footsteps.
The London Live and Evening Standard Christmas Appeal is raising money for Centrepoint to launch a free helpline, giving advice and support to young people who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.
