Centrepoint has been supporting homeless young people since 1969. It began as a shelter in the basement of a church in Soho, London, but now has over 60 accommodation services across the UK.
They’ve made a big difference to the lives of many young people, but there’s still more to be done. Centrepoint estimates that 86,000 young people asked their local council for help in 2016/17 because they were homeless or at risk of homelessness.
This isn’t acceptable. That’s why we’re committed to helping vulnerable young people break the cycle of homelessness.
