Coronavirus & Its impact

The impact of COVID-19 has been huge, and inescapable for us all. But, for young people experiencing homelessness or social exclusion, it is even more devastating.

Centrepoint young people

In homes and hostels across the country - bored and afraid - young people are looking at their phones and TVs searching for reassurance and hope. They seek a sense of connection and community, despite being alone in isolation.

Social networks have gone back to their origins. They are being used as the connecting tools which they were intended to be from the very beginning: bringing people together when they need it most.

And this is where you can help. Together we can help young people remain engaged, active and connected during self- isolation. Every two weeks, for as long as we are unable to deliver our usual Engagement programmes, we will be launching three exciting challenges around the themes of our regular activity: Arts & Culture, Sport, and Food. All activities and challenges can be done with minimal resources, in any space.

So, think you're ready for a challenge?

Pick from our current challenges below - and don't forget to let us know how you get on!
