The coronavirus crisis has led to rising unemployment, impacting young people’s prospects terribly. The lockdowns have pushed tensions to boiling point, leading to more family breakdown and domestic violence, and pushing more young people into homelessness.

Right now, over 120,000 young people are facing homelessness, many of them for the first time in their lives.

We must act now to help them – but we need your urgent support.

Your vital gift today could:

  • Help answer a huge increase in calls to our helpline from vulnerable young people in urgent need of support.
  • Continue to support over 1,000 young people currently locked down in Centrepoint accommodation, many of whom are self-isolating.
  • Provide PPE for Centrepoint key-workers, tirelessly supporting young people in our services.

We need your help to keep young people safe

Our fundraising income has fallen and we are facing a shortfall. At the same time, demand for our services has risen.

Your donation today could make a life-changing difference to vulnerable young people who are frightened, alone and have nowhere else to turn.

The biggest youth homelessness crisis in our history

  • We are already seeing an increase of around 50% in calls to our Helpline from young people in crisis with nowhere else turn.
  • 380,000 people are experiencing ‘hidden’ homelessness in the UK. Many are young and have now lost their only shelter.
  • For many young people, we are their only safety net.

“Who else is going to help, if we do not? Who else is going to continue to support us, if you do not? The need for a young person who is homeless to feel a part of the Centrepoint family and, more importantly, a valued person - is that not why we are here?” – Lee, Development Officer, Manchester
