The challenge is simple: STAY:UP from 8pm until 8am so that homeless young people don't have to. Your one night without sleep could help a homeless young person turn their life around forever.
Tackle your tiredness, fight the fatigue, banish bedtime and whatever you do, don’t fall asleep!
From housing and health to learning and engagement, we aim to help vulnerable young people move on from homelessness and build a future they can believe in.
We know homeless young people are sleeping rough on the streets every night - but there are thousands more you don't see.
We provide accommodation, health support and life skills to get vulnerable young people back into education, training and employment.
There’s no time to lose. The mental health of homeless young people has been deteriorating rapidly since the onset of the Coronavirus pandemic. The clock is ticking and their lives are at risk. We cannot let them down. With your support, we can adapt and expand our mental health services to meet the growing demand.
Our blog is a safe space where we discuss the things that really matter to us: young people, housing, government policy, our campaigns and our work. It's where we ask the difficult questions, demystify the jargon, discuss the policies that affect young people the most and give you a glimpse of our day-to-day as a youth homelessness charity.
With our support, young people have achieved amazing things and overcome some huge obstacles.
Here are some of the real stories of Centrepoint young people and staff.
We operate 60 services providing support to young people across the UK.
We provide 1,107 bed spaces for homeless young people.
88 per cent of young people move on from Centrepoint positively.
As one of the dedicated youth homelessness charities in the UK, we're determined to get vulnerable young people off the streets.
By sponsoring a room at Centrepoint you can help a young person like Nadia leave homelessness behind for good. For just £12 a month you can help save lives and change lives.
