You are making change happen

For charities, data should inform what we do. For Centrepoint it’s more than that. It’s vital. We want to show you how it drives what we do and helps change lives. 9,200 lives in fact, that couldn’t have changed for the better without you. From our Care Leavers Report, to our Spotlight Survey, through to helping more young people in Manchester – data is driving this work and you can read more about these areas below.

Give something truly meaningful this Christmas with more than a gift

Start something special by giving more than a gift to someone you care about this Christmas. From a Christmas meal to a new start – you’ll both know that your generosity is helping a homeless young person at a time when it matters most.

More than a gift

Leaving care shouldn’t mean facing homelessness

Young people leaving care are some of the most vulnerable young people in our society - over 62% of looked after children were taken into care due to abuse or neglect. Leaving care is a key moment in these young people’s lives, and events at this stage in their life will have a lasting impact.

Mothers and babies

Centrepoint Mothers and Babies services are a lifeline for new mothers. They offer vital accommodation at one of the most challenging and transitional chapters in a woman’s life.

Our Supporters: You are amazing!

Carole, a Mother from Yorkshire, tells her real life story of why she supports Centrepoint.

In Sleep Outs we Trust!

Most of us are lucky enough not to know what it feels like to sleep rough. For more than 10 years, our Sleep Out events have replicated a small part of the experience and crucially raised money for the young people facing it.

Expanding our reach and helping more young people!

When our supporters go above and beyond, we can too. Centrepoint works in London, Yorkshire and the North East. But we have now expanded our reach to work in Manchester.

Centrepoint Youth Spotlight

Centrepoint has launched The Centrepoint Youth Spotlight - the largest survey of homeless young people ever conducted in the UK, and as part of our efforts to discover more about the experiences of young people.

Staff Story: Changing times

Catherine started working for Centrepoint 17 years ago in Housing Support services, supporting young people in shared flats. We wanted to find out why she has worked for Centrepoint for so long, the change she has seen and what matters to her.

Sport to inspire change!

Centrepoint services are about more than just providing safe and stable accommodation for homeless young people. Sometimes building self confidence and improving health is the very first hurdle.

Centrepoint has supported homeless young people since 1969.
