Centrepoint in Manchester

Our work in Manchester

Centrepoint has been supporting 18-25 year-olds without a home in Manchester since February 2017.

In 2020 we redeveloped our 52 Oldham Street service, creating a new, psychologically informed environment that centres the emotional needs of the people who access it.

Our services in central Manchester help young people on their first step into a home and a job.

Recently there’s been an increase in the number of young people homeless or at risk in the North West. The accommodation and support we provide is more important than ever to give people a safe, secure place to move forward with their lives.


Need help in Manchester?

If you’re based in Manchester, 18-25 years old and at risk of homelessness, please contact Manchester City Council.


Joe Lomas is the Head of Support and Housing (North) and works at our Manchester office.

"Our homelessness service works with around 1000 young people a year supporting 18-25 year olds who are homeless or threatened with homelessness. We can support them to access accommodation (both short-term and long-term) as well as refer them to specialist services for mental health support, substance misuse, etc.

We work with a wide spectrum of young people - from people for whom homelessness can still be prevented, those who are homeless for the first time, right through to those who are on the streets. Many are care leavers, young parents, refugees, or leaving custody and hospital.

We listen to young people and try to understand their journey. We are non-judgmental. We will work with anyone who is 18-25 regardless of needs or risk.

We are also able to meet their basic needs when they present e.g. giving them access to food, showers, clean clothes, and facilitating travel.

We work with many who have been failed by other agencies or where other agencies struggle to engage them.”
