Every day, our aim is to give homeless young people a future. Our long-term goal is to end youth homelessness.
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 10,000 homeless young people each year.
The homeless young people that come to Centrepoint stay with us for up to two years. An amazing 86 per cent then move into their own homes, connect back with their families, get their first jobs or go to university.
We provide 1,271 bed spaces for homeless young people.
We now operate 60 services providing support to young people across the UK.
We focus on areas of policy including housing, family and health.
At 35 weeks pregnant, Tamara became homeless. Her mum kicked her out due to a breakdown of her mental health. With support and a lot of dedication, Tamara has turned her life around.
Our health support makes young people 21 per cent more likely to get into their preferred education or training.
More than one in five young people leave Centrepoint with more qualifications than when they arrived.
The first of its kind, our Helpline offers advice to anyone in England aged 16-25 who needs help with homelessness.
Centrepoint’s is the UK’s leading youth homelessness charity. We provide young people with accommodation, health support and life skills to get them back into education, training and employment.
