Our impact and success

Every day, our aim is to give homeless young people a future. Our long-term goal is to end youth homelessness by 2037.

Making a difference Since 1969

Ever since Centrepoint was founded in a church basement in Soho, we’ve focused on improving the lives of homeless young people. Thanks to our amazing supporters, we’re now able to reach over 14,000 homeless young people each year.

94 per cent of our young people move on positively

Young people that come to Centrepoint are able to stay with us for up to two years. An amazing 94 per cent of these young people then move into their own homes, reconnect with their families, get their first jobs or go to university.

Moving On

The best mum she could be

At 35 weeks pregnant, Tamara became homeless. She was kicked out of the family home by her mother, due to a breakdown in her mental health. With support and a lot of determination, Tamara has turned her life around.


66% of young people receiving support from Centrepoint’s Psychotherapy and Mental Health team reduce the severity of their symptoms.  


60% of Centrepoint residents who took Centrepoint Works training courses in 2020/21 finished with a qualification.


The first of its kind, our Helpline offers advice to anyone in England aged 16-25 who needs help with homelessness.


87 per cent of participants in our Engagement programme reported an increase in confidence and self-esteem after taking part.
