Your Impact

Winter update 2018

This edition of Your Impact focuses on the power of conversations. These discussions affect every aspect of our lives and are a way of sharing with others our thoughts and feelings on all manner of subjects. At Centrepoint, our conversations with young people, and with you, our supporters, are vital in helping us deliver the best possible service for homeless young people.

The Power of Communication

We value your opinion

You have helped so many young people – your support is everything. So we want to find out a little more about your views. Please take a few minutes to complete your Supporter Survey.

How conversations save lives

In February 2017, we launched the Centrepoint Helpline. We realised there were no helplines specifically designed to meet the complex and urgent needs of young people facing homelessness. Some of you may recall the launch of the Helpline in partnership with the Evening Standard and our patron HRH The Duke of Cambridge listening in on the first ever call.

Our supporters: City of London School

City of London School for Boys stunned us all with their immense fundraising efforts in 2017. They raised a brilliant £78,079 through their year-long charity partnership.

Let’s keep the conversation going

In May this year the data protection law is changing and we will need your permission to contact you. Without it we could lose touch, and we won’t be able to let you know about all the fantastic work your support is making possible.

How conversations heal

In partnership with the NHS, this year we will be taking strides to improve young people's mental health. We're running training programmes to give staff with the skills they need to best support young people with mental health issues.

Insight into a conversation

Without good mental health, it is extremely difficult for our young people to retain a job and a home. Having left foster care at 17, Carly struggled with mental health problems that prevented her from becoming independent.

Centrepoint’s Big Broth competition

Ladles at the ready! We're soup-er excited to launch our new competition to find the nation's tastiest homemade soup recipe. The lucky winner will have their delicious recipe produced by Yorkshire Provender.
