Why your help is needed

Young people sleeping rough is a shocking and increasingly visible problem. But that problem isn't going away – in fact it's getting worse. Our research shows 86,000 young people approached their local council because they were homeless or at risk of homelessness in 2016/17.

From 40p a day you can change a life like Jack's

Jack was kicked out at 13 and sofa surfed for a short while. He returned home until he was 16, when life at home became unbearable again. Jack was on the streets. He experienced mental health problems, leading to a number of suicide attempts.

Fortunately, after hospital treatment Jack was referred to Centrepoint. Here he received the necessary support for his mental and physical health needs. This helped him to move into his own accommodation, begin to repair the relationship with his family and start an apprenticeship.

Homeless young people often resort to desperate measures to survive – and your room will be much more than a roof over a young person’s head. It's a safe haven where they can gain access to education, counselling and apprenticeships until they're ready to move on.
