Centrepoint in Manchester

Centrepoint has been supporting homeless 16-25 year-olds in Manchester since February 2017.

Our services in central Manchester help young people on their first step into a home and a job.

We're back!

Over the past couple of years, we developed ambitious plans to physically transform our building at 52 Oldham Street, helping to ensure that Greater Manchester’s homeless young people feel safe, valued and cared for. For the last 12 months we've been based at North Parade, but we're now back at Oldham Street.

Youth homelessness in Manchester

Young people sleeping rough is a shocking and increasingly visible problem in Manchester. Sadly, youth homelessness runs even deeper than having to spend nights on the street. Complex mental and physical health needs, gang crime, and a lack of access to education are just some the barriers young people face.

In 2017/18, at least 5,000 young people in Manchester approached their local authority because they were homeless or at risk of homelessness.

The Issue

Our impact in Manchester

Centrepoint merged with Young People's Support Foundation (YPSF) in 2017. This combined our expertise in health, education and housing support with YPSF's local knowledge. As a result, vulnerable young Mancunians now have a better chance to overcome the challenges they face.

When her mum died, Abi’s relationship with her dad broke down. Scared he would turn violent, Abi felt she had no choice but to sleep rough on the streets of Manchester.

But coming to Centrepoint was a turning point. Here she got a warm, safe room and received support to help rebuild her life.
