LP Happy Emma Half Block

We all need a home – somewhere we can be happy and safe.

Just before Emma’s sixteenth birthday, her whole life turned upside down. Her dad started becoming aggressive and she left her family home. The trouble is, she was forced to move into a whole new house of danger. Some nights to escape, she drank until she wouldn’t feel the cold, then slept in the local park.

Safe Haven

You are helping to provide homeless young people with a safe and warm room they can call home. We run short-stay hostels, supported flats and services where homeless young people can study and train.

Front Line

Young people who come to Centrepoint often have a range of different and complex problems, and supporting them isn’t as simple as giving them a home. Many will have a mental health issue, such as depression and anxiety, and others may need to tackle issues with substance misuse.

Life lessons in Latin America

Jennifer first came to Centrepoint on 1 August 2014 after being in care due to a family breakdown. It was clear she had the desire to give back to her community and, in her words, ‘make a difference’. Like so many other young people, all she needed was the information, opportunity and support from people like you to really thrive.
