You can help us give young people the practical tools and necessary confidence to positively transform their own situation. Through the power of sport they can do so much more.
We support 10,000 homeless young people to help them rebuild their lives.
2,583 people participated in Centrepoint Sport programmes during 2017/18
86% of the young people Centrepoint supports move on positively. We couldn't do it without you.
Before coming to Centrepoint, Talisha had been in and out of hostels since the age of 16. “I was kicked out of home before that but I was sofa surfing between London and my auntie’s in Essex because I couldn’t go back to my mum’s,” she says. Not having a fixed address meant Talisha was unable to find a job, making her situation even worse. But things improved for Talisha after she joined Centrepoint Sport. She took part in our Training Centre with Arsenal, which opened the door to other personal development and sporting opportunities. She's represented her country for Street Football Team England and is now looking for work in the construction sector.
You can help fund monthly personal development sessions with highly qualified sports professionals. We run open sessions in boxing, football and fitness.
For 40p a day, you can sponsor a room and help homeless young people gain stability, emotional support and access to our sports programmes.
For a homeless young person, regular access to coaches, facilities and sports equipment can be simply unaffordable. Your donation could fund personal development.
We use sport to inspire positive change in young people. Our unique approach combines physical fitness with education, life skills and employment training. All our programmes are designed to have a huge impact on young people's long-term prospects.
