Together with our partners, we support more than 10,000 homeless young people each year.
At Centrepoint, we help vulnerable young people by giving them the practical and emotional support they need to find a job and live independently.
The stats for homeless young people are shocking. Our research revealed that in 2016/17, an estimated 86,000 young people approached their local authority because they were homeless or at risk of homelessness.
We know homeless young people are sleeping rough on the streets every night. But there are thousands more you don't see.
We provide accommodation, health support and life skills to get vulnerable young people back into education, training and employment.
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.
So many homeless young people find that although they achieve outstanding A Level results, the hidden costs of university and training are impossible to pay.
Our student grants support homeless young people with their studies. No matter where a young person starts out in life, it shouldn't affect the opportunities open to them.
We operate 60 services providing support to young people across the UK.
We save the public purse £20,000 for every young person we work with.
86 per cent of young people move on from Centrepoint positively.
As one of the dedicated youth homelessness charities in the UK, we're determined to get vulnerable young people off the streets.
By sponsoring a room at Centrepoint you can help a young person like Nadia leave homelessness behind for good. For just £12 a month you can help save lives and change lives.
If you're rough sleeping, sofa surfing or don't feel safe in your home, The Centrepoint Helpline is here to support you. We can support you and give you help with housing if you're at risk of being homeless.
