More than a number The scale of youth homelessness

Our research estimates 86,000 young people asked for help from their local council in 2016/17 because they were homeless or at risk of homelessness. This is the only estimate of its kind.

What is 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. 

Our services

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

Our impact

Thanks to our supporters, we've been making an impact on youth homelessness in the UK for more than 45 years.

Zinnia's story

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.
