Tamara, a Centrepoint young people

What we do

Homeless young people, aged 16-25, stay with Centrepoint for up to two years, but we keep supporting them for another six months to make sure they can live independently.

We provide accommodation, health support and life skills to get them back into education, training and employment.

A home and a job A future

Centrepoint is the UK's leading charity for homeless young people - but what does that actually mean? It means that, together with our partners, we support 10,000 young people every year. We help 16-25 year olds into a safe place to live, give them a health assessment and plan support for their individual mental and physical health needs. We start them on a path to more independence and a job.


The best mum she could be

At 35 weeks pregnant, Tamara became homeless. Her mum kicked her out and she had nowhere else to turn.

But with support and a lot of dedication, Tamara has turned her life around and grown in confidence.
