Centrepoint is a national charity established in 1969 that supports homeless young people to get their lives back on track. Our services for young people include housing, personal and social development and employability, with the overall aim of enabling them to secure a home, a skill and a sustainable future.

As part of its strategy to support every young person with a home and a job Centrepoint has grown its Skills and Employability offer to support our aim of diversifying our income.
A key aspect of this, is the work that Centrepoint has been doing to deliver engaging ‘Routeways into Work’ programmes (funded via Traineeships and ESIF), which enable unemployed young people aged 19 – 24 years, to access the training and work experience they need to demonstrate their skills to recruiting employers and secure employment.
