Centrepoint - The organization helping young homeless people to get their lives back

By Sharda ten Hove on 27 March 2014

Centrepoint is a UK based charity organization. Their vision is to end youth homelessness and their mission is to everyday give homeless young people a future.

The young people Centrepoint works with are between 16 and 25 years old and come from a wide variety of backgrounds and nations. When Centrepoint first meets them, all are homeless or at serious risk of becoming homeless; many are on a downward spiral.
Thanks to Centrepoint these young people are receiving help with accomodation, health support, education,employment and financial aid.

There are many different services and centers as there are young people with different needs. Centrepoint works closely with these young people to help them to believe in their own potential so that they can start to live an independent life.
