Why is your help still needed?

The Winter chill has ended. Vulnerable young people still need your support to survive the cold nights. Some young people will choose between sleeping rough or staying with a stranger – just to survive the cold.

Without your generous support...

  • We couldn’t run the Centrepoint Helpline, which has helped thousands of homeless young people get the support they need.
  • We couldn’t prepare for The Homelessness Reduction Act, which came into effect April 2018. Anyone presenting to their local authorities as homeless now has to be assessed – potentially leading to an increase in the need for services to prevent youth homelessness.
  • We couldn't provide a safe place for homeless young people to live across the UK.

By sponsoring a room, you help young people gain access to specialist health support, a national engagement programme and essential education.

  • Prevent young people from falling into unnecessary debt or losing their accommodation once they've moved on. 
  • Support more young people to leave homelessness behind for good.
  • Help more young people to leave homelessness behind for good.
  • Continue supporting more than 10,000 young people each year
  • Offer support to some of the 103,000 who were homeless or at risk of homelessness.

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 place where they can gain access to education, counselling and apprenticeships until they're ready to move on.
