Centrepoint supports more than 9,200 homeless young people each year. We work in London, Manchester, Sunderland and Yorkshire, and with partner charities across the UK.
It's time to end youth homelessness.
We know young people sleep rough every night – in parks, stairwells, under bridges and worse. But there are thousands more you don't see – spending the night on buses, on sofas or in the homes of strangers. They're escaping abuse, violence, gangs and fear. Many are homeless because they can't live with their family, or they have no family.
We provide accommodation, health support and life skills to get homeless young people back into education, training and employment.
By sponsoring a room at Centrepoint you can help a homeless young person like Nadia leave homelessness behind for good. For just £12 a month you can help save lives and change lives.
Aged five, Zinnia’s mum kicked her and her dad out. Aged nine, Zinnia was placed into foster care. After the birth of her child, Zinnia became homeless. But after coming to Centrepoint, Zinnia received emotional support for her mental health and help with life skills to get her back on track. Now she's thriving in her own home and has her dream job as a painter and decorator.
We believe in being responsible and transparent with our finances. Your money helps us make an impact for homeless young people now and in the future. It pays for our support services and helps us invest in ways that bring us closer to ending youth homelessness for good.
For every £1 we spend, 76p goes directly on supporting young people, 23p goes on making sure we can support them in the future through fundraising and just 1p goes on administration and governance.
