Housing

A safe, warm room is the first, crucial step to breaking the cycle of homelessness.

Centrepoint gives homeless young people a place to stay while they get the help they need to move on to independence.

A fresh start

Every young person is different. We have specialist services for single parents and looked after children, those leaving care and escaping violence and abuse, and affordable accommodation for young people.

Centrepoint provides bed spaces for homeless young people.

We provide 1,271 supported bed spaces for homeless 16-25 year olds.

Care Leavers Orange

We support more than 10,000 homeless 16-25 year olds a year.

It's estimated we save the public purse £20,000 for every young person we work with.

As the UK's leading youth homelessness charity, we run over 60 accommodation services. We work in 15 boroughs in London, Sunderland, Manchester, Bradford and Barnsley.

Matt, Service Manager

Matt manages one of our hostels in London. He has personal experience of homelessness after moving to the capital at 15. He oversees all the support young people receive at his service.

 I’ve never met a bad young person,” he says. “I’ve met young people in bad situations, young people who’ve had no breaks.”

A room alone is not the answer

Vulnerable young people need more than just a room to leave homelessness behind for good.

Health and wellbeing

We give homeless young people support to look after their mental and physical health.

Learning and skills

For homeless young people, a job is almost as important as a home. 

Moving On

At all times, our overall goal is to prepare homeless young people to live independently.
