ARE YOU HOMELESS, SOFA SURFING OR AT RISK?

Daniel was rough sleeping on the streets, but with Centrepoint's support he's now happy and looking forward to a brighter future.

About us

Centrepoint provides housing and support for young people in London, Manchester, Yorkshire and the North East and through partnerships all over the UK.

We aim to give homeless young people a future and we want to end youth homelessness.

We're determined to end youth homelessness

Centrepoint is not a 9-5! We run services seven days a week, every week of the year – even Christmas day. Our staff are dedicated to making sure we can help every young person that comes through our door, from support workers, to fundraising, to finance and our board.

Prince William, our charity's patron, meets young father Joe at our Bradford Foyer in 2014.

Our Patron

HRH The Duke of Cambridge has been our Patron since 2005 following in the footsteps of his mother, Princess Diana. Prince William would visit our hostels when he was a child and, when it was his turn to take over some of her patronages, Centrepoint was the first one he chose. He regularly visits us both in the public eye, but also in private, so he can meet and chat to the young people we support.

What makes Centrepoint?

You've heard about the young people we support, but it's the people – the staff, the board, the partners, the ambassadors and our Patron – that make it happen every day. They take every pound raised and every bed made and turn it into a future for a homeless young person.

"I WOULDN'T BE THE PERSON I AM TODAY"

When her mum died, Abi’s relationship with her dad broke down. Scared he would turn violent, Abi felt she had no choice but to sleep rough. When Christmas Day came, she was all alone with nothing to eat and no one to talk to. But coming to Centrepoint was a turning point. Here she got a warm, safe room and received support to help rebuild her life.
