Centrepoint's new modular homes will tackle youth homelessness and unemployment

Pascale Day, Senior Editorial and Web Officer

Here at Centrepoint, our mantra is “a job and a home” for homeless young people. To help fulfill this aim of eradicating youth homelessness and providing 16 to 25-year-olds with a stable future, the charity has launched the biggest capital investment plan in its 50-year history: to deliver 300 new modular homes across London and Greater Manchester by 2021 in order to help young people into affordable accommodation, training, and employment.

As February marks LGBT Awareness Month, we're asking the all-important question: how can we ensure we create safe spaces for members of the LGBTQ+ community without a place to stay?
