Why your help is needed

Young people sleeping rough is a shocking and increasingly visible problem. But that problem isn't going away – in fact it's getting worse. Our research shows 86,000 young people approached their local council because they were homeless or at risk of homelessness in 2016/17.

Donate to the charity Centrepoint and help a young person like Nadia.

For just 40p a day, Centrepoint will:

  • Provide a warm, safe space where a young person can stay.
  • Support young people with counselling and practical advice so they can rebuild their confidence.
  • Give young people the skills they need to find and stay in a job.
  • Teach young people basics skills like cooking and managing their money – helping them to move on and lead independent lives.
  • Send you updates about our work and how your support has helped homeless young people.

From just 40p a day you can change a life like Dan's

After years of abuse, Dan finally ran away from home. He was just 17. Unable to access help from his council, Dan had no choice but to sleep rough. Alone and exposed, his health rapidly deteriorated. Fortunately, Dan was put in touch with Centrepoint before it was too late.

Dan's story

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 haven where they can gain access to education, counselling and apprenticeships until they're ready to move on.
