Rafiki from The Lion King

With the help of their generous audiences, The Lion King has raised over £85,000 for Centrepoint since they joined forces in 2018.

Centrepoint is the UK’s leading charity for homeless young people. Together with our partners, we support more than 15,000 vulnerable 16- to 25-year-olds each year.

Our partnership

In 2019, The Lion King is continuing to support Centrepoint's work to give homeless young people a future. Disney is planning unique ways for young people to learn and develop – including theatre workshops and business skills opportunities. Young people will also get the chance to experience the show for themselves.


We help young people budget, pay bills and live independently.

Helping the homeless young people in the UK. After getting help from Centrepoint, Tori is now living without fear.

"Everyone was really supportive"

At just 15 years old, Tori was hospitalised by her Mum. She was forced to leave home in difficult circumstances twice, first from her mother’s house then her godmother’s. Seven years after leaving Centrepoint, she’s now living a life without fear. She's thriving in her new flat, and working as a dance teacher, photographer, film-maker and fashion designer.
