We never know what the English weather will bring, and neither do young people facing a night on the streets. 

With over 18,000 young people at risk of homelessness this winter, your support can help give them a warm, safe place to stay.

Freezing and alone

This time last year, 16-year-old Tiana was sleeping rough with nowhere to go. She remembers the freezing cold, the snow and being unable to feel her fingers. She couldn't sleep and didn't know what to do. She was ready to give up.

But after receiving a referral from her local council, Tiana came to Centrepoint. Without her warm, safe room, who knows where she'd be today? Now she's looking forward to her future and feels like life is worth living.

The freezing streets are no place for young people to be at night. You feel the chill in your bones. There's no way and nowhere you can get warm. You lose all hope, and you're so vulnerable.

Unpredictable winter weather

The unpredictable weather of the past month has brought snow showers to many of our services around England including Manchester, Bradford and Barnsley.

Your donation could start a future this winter

This winter, thousands of young people will be homeless or at risk of being homeless. But your donation can give young people the chance to leave homelessness behind for good.

With your help we can provide young people with a warm, safe room and ongoing support from a Key Worker. This will give them the chance to learn important life skills to help them move on to live independently.


We work with each young person to come up with a plan to reach their goals.


Good health is the foundation on which young people can build their confidence and skills.

Moving On

At all times, our overall goal is to prepare homeless young people to live independently.
