Can you help?

Homeless young people need your support after the cold winter months. Young people will face potentially dangerous situations – like deciding whether it's better to sleep on the streets or stay with a stranger to avoid the cold nights.

Centrepoint provides housing for homeless young people: a graphic representing that young people move on positively after leaving Centrepoint.

86 per cent of Centrepoint young people move on positively.

Josh E's Story

Josh was 18 when a breakdown in relationship with his mum meant he couldn’t stay at home. On Christmas Day, he was diagnosed with sciatica and told he couldn't return home by a relative.

Since you've been gone...

  • Centrepoint’s research estimates 103,000 young people were homeless or at risk of homelessness
  • The Centrepoint Helpline has helped thousands of homeless young people get the support they need.
  • We've been operating 60 accommodation services in London, Manchester, Yorkshire and the North East. 
  • The Homelessness Reduction Act came into effect in April 2018. This means that anyone presenting to their local authorities as homeless must now be assessed – potentially leading to an increase in the need for services to prevent youth homelessness.

Help save lives and change lives today

Homeless young people often resort to desperate measures to survive – and your room will be much more than a roof over a young person’s head. It's a safe place where they can gain access to education, counselling and apprenticeships until they're ready to move on.
