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.

Nadia's story

At just 15 years old the breakdown of Nadia’s family meant she found herself with no choice but to stay with her drug addicted ex-boyfriend. Nadia was surrounded by dangers and constant threats to her safety. She often spent long nights in the park trying to escape her ex-boyfriend’s drunken father.

But after coming to Centrepoint, today Nadia is rebuilding her life. She's training to be a hairdresser and has a place of her own. Most importantly, she has a future to look forward to.

Help save lives and change lives today

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.
