The number of young people aged 16 to 24 becoming homeless in London has doubled in the last three years.
Depaul UK needs to double the number of hosting households by 2015.
The charity is calling on households across the UK who have a spare room to consider making it available to a young homeless person.
A spokesperson for the Mayor of London said:
“To help us stamp out touting and second selling we’d urge everyone to only purchase through the official site.
There are tens of thousands of tickets still available so there is absolutely no need to pay more. If you get a ticket and change your mind we have an easy refund policy with full refunds available up to 28 days before the event. All returned tickets will be re-sold.”

While Viagogo are asking a relatively mild £102.27 per ticket.

Simon Shaw That is greed. Pure & simple.
Paula Ann Meenan They will be in the sky, so if you live there will you be banned from looking out your window?
Paul Freedman So will they have barriers round all the area where the fireworks are to stop people that haven't paid from getting in? And if they haven't paid will they be banned from looking upwards?
Tears Carpenter Not sure how this will work. Any body with any sense will just look up at the sky and watch it without paying £10 or find a good place to watch it for free unless the fire works are not going up in the sky anymore?
Mark Foster I'm pretty sure you will be able to see them spectacularly from The South Bank and Hungerford bridge... for free.
@itvlondon it's just not worth it. I have been 2 years and left every time before the fireworks. Crowded, crushed and often wet.
