We rely on our volunteers

Last year, our volunteers gave more than 11,000 hours of their time to Centrepoint Without our volunteers, we couldn’t have such a positive impact on homeless young people’s lives.

Our volunteers support young people’s career ambitions, engage them with our services and programmes, help them into accommodation or just give them that little extra nudge to trying something new.

Philip, a Centrepoint volunteer mentor, who helps homeless young people.

Philip, volunteer coach

I’m currently studying towards a teaching qualification at the University of Sunderland, so volunteering at Centrepoint has been extremely useful in helping me on the path to become a teacher.

I’ve been supporting young people by teaching Functional Skills English. While at Centrepoint, I’ve become aware of the difficulties learners are facing – both in their own lives and in education. By tackling these issues head on, it’s definitely helped prepare me for the classroom – so there have been lots of benefits of volunteering.
