Centrepoint Helpline: more about us

We take your privacy seriously. Here's how we collect, share and process personal information when you contact the Helpline.

What we do

The Centrepoint Helpline provides housing advice in England to young people aged 16-25 or their family and friends over email, webchat and phone. We listen to young people and provide them with advice and details of services they can access.

The Centrepoint Helpline is currently open Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm. We're committed to reviewing these opening hours and improving access to translation services.
