About CentrePoint

Centrepoint was first established in 1969 by the vicar of St Anne's church, Ken Leech, in Soho, London. Disturbed by the number of young people sleeping rough in and around the Soho area, Mr. Leech opened up the basement of his church to become a temporary shelter for those living on the streets. Things have certainly changed since 1969, with Centrepoint helping up to 825 people a day at any one of their 33 service centres across the UK. By providing homeless people with shelter, support, education and training, Centrepoint's tireless work within local communities offer real hope where once there was none.
