ARE YOU HOMELESS, SOFA SURFING OR AT RISK?

D121 Xmas 22000 Campaign Temporary Handraiser Bg V1

Welcome to Centrepoint: The UK's leading youth homelessness charity

We think it’s outrageous that 22,000 young people are facing homelessness this Christmas. So we’re fighting back and taking action – by covering walls with art and stickers, and campaigning for change. Join us and demand that the government end youth homelessness for good.

What is youth homelessness?

We know homeless young people are sleeping rough on the streets every night. But there are thousands more you don't see. 

Our support services

We provide accommodation, health support and life skills to get vulnerable young people back into education, training and employment.

Our impact

Thanks to our supporters, we've been one of the most effective charities that help homeless young people for almost 50 years.

The Centrepoint Christmas Appeal: support vulnerable young people like Katie today

This year over 22,000 vulnerable young people, like Katie, face the horrible choice of where to sleep during the freezing winter nights.

Help us end youth homelessness by breaking the cycle for young people. With a gift from you today, we can make sure young people like Katie know that we're here for them this Christmas.

50 Years of Centrepoint

In the last 50 years, thanks to our supporters we’ve been there for thousands of homeless young people when they had nowhere else to turn.

But many more still have nowhere safe to sleep tonight. Let's change the story and end youth homelessness for good.

Sleep Out

By sleeping out with friends, family or colleagues for just one night, you can show your support for the incredible young people we work with and help fund the projects and services they need to get their lives back on track. This won’t be the most comfortable night you’ve ever spent, but we promise it will be one of the most meaningful.
