To turn their lives around, homeless young people need access to accommodation and employment.
They may also need the welfare system to be their safety net while they get support for other needs, like poor mental health.
Despite the recent economic recovery, youth unemployment in the UK is still almost three times higher than the rest of the population. Getting into work is especially tough for disadvantaged young people facing extra challenges in their lives.
Unemployment is particularly common among disadvantaged groups, including those who have experienced or are at risk of homelessness
Like many young people, homeless young people face significant challenges that make the transition from school to employment particularly challenging.

Moneywise is the umbrella term for the range of activities delivered by Centrepoint aimed at improving the financial and mental wellbeing of homeless young people.
Young people aged 18 to 21, who claim Universal Credit, are required to participate in an intensive regime of support from day one of their benefit claim.

Universal Credit rolls six existing benefits into one monthly payment. This guide is for young people living in supported accommodation, such as a hostel.

A study carried out by Centrepoint explored the health concerns of homeless young people supported by our services.
