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

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.

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