80,000 young people experience homelessness in the UK every
Centrepoint provides a safe place to live for more than 1,000
young people, aged 16-25, in London and the North East of
England. But Centrepoint is more than just a room...
We support these young people into positive and independent
living with health programmes, life skills, learning

impact we had in 2011-12
80,000 is a worryingly high
figure. Even this doesn't count the 'hidden homeless', like sofa
surfers and young people sleeping on night buses.
Our Patron HRH Prince William, The Duke of Cambridge, with Centrepoint young people during a visit to one of our hostels
We believe that we should live in a society where all young
people are able to realise their potential. Since 1969, we have
helped over 75,000 homeless young people to do just that.
Through our award-winning approach to supporting homeless young
people, collaborating with others and influencing government
policy, we will achieve our vision of ending youth homelessness.
Our work is supported by thousands of donors, hundreds of
volunteers and HRH The Duke of Cambridge, who became our Patron in
2005. Find out
