Starting out as a night shelter, Centrepoint’s work with young people has evolved beyond all recognition over the last 50 years. We now provide a whole range of support for those aged 16-25 who are homeless or at risk of becoming so. We now help them not only with accommodation, but with advice on getting and staying healthy, and getting the education, training and life skills needed to succeed. We do this because giving homeless young people a chance to build new lives is just the right thing to do.
Over the years, we have provided over 125,000 young people with accommodation, health support and life skills to get them back into education training and employment. We have campaigned tirelessly for change and to ensure homeless young people getting the support they need when it comes to benefits, education, skills and employment as well as housing.
