  • Continue to support over 1,000 young people currently on lockdown in Centrepoint accommodation, many of whom are self-isolating.

Thank You

Our fundraising income has fallen dramatically and we are facing a crippling 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 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 p​erson - is that not why we are here?”
