Journey nearly over? Sara's isn't.

Tonight thousands of young people will risk staying with a stranger, commit a crime, or even hurt themselves so they will be admitted to hospital just to get somewhere to sleep. Last year we helped over 9,200 homeless young people. Our hostels are open 24 hours a day, every day, including Christmas Day. But this winter 16,000 young people will be at risk of homelessness.

For every young person we work with, it is estimated that Centrepoint benefits the public purse by nearly £20,000.

77p Of Every Pound Orange

76p in every £1 we spend goes directly to supporting young people now and investing to make sure more homeless young people get support tomorrow.

Centrepoint has supported homeless young people since 1969.

88% of the young people Centrepoint supports move on positively. We couldn't do it without you.

 

We use models and change the names of the young people we work with to protect their identity, however, all stories are true and as told by the young person.
