An image of Zinnia, who has shared her personal story of homelessness.


Aged five, Zinnia’s mum kicked her and her dad out. Aged nine, Zinnia was placed into foster care. After the birth of her child, Zinnia became homeless.

But after coming to Centrepoint, Zinnia received emotional support for her mental health and help with life skills to get her back on track. Now she's thriving in her own home and has her dream job as a painter and decorator.

In the last year we have supported over 13,000 vulnerable young adults, but we know thousands more homeless young people need better support services. 121,000 young people asked their local council for help with homelessness in 2020/21.
