Every night over 800 young people sleep safely in Centrepoint’s projects knowing that tomorrow they will be given all the support they need to fulfill their potential.
Centrepoint provides the counseling training, education, employment and housing advice that helps ensure homeless young people get off the streets and stay off the streets. Centrepoint works directly with young people in Greater London, and in the North East.
Every year we provide over 290,000 nights’ accommodation to Britain’s young homeless. We work directly with more than 800 young people each day. Since 1969 we have helped more than 73,000 young people.
Our work is about much more than just shelter. We support young people to help them turn their lives around, and develop to their potential. Our aim is to give them the power to regain control of their lives, to give them back their future, and for that future to be brighter.
Centrepoint is the place homeless young people can call home. We provide a safe place to live. We offer the caring relationships and sense of belonging that go with being ‘at home’. We offer health care and teach them life skills. We help them manage money. We give them educational and employment support. We enable them to contribute to the communities they are part of.
