Centrepoint is the UK’s leading charity for homeless young people and it supports more than 6000 young people into accommodation and employment every year.

Prince William is Patron of the charity and whilst in Bradford, he will learn more about what the charity does and watch young people take part in a variety of workshops; including employability training and video skills.

The charity also conducts research as well as influencing government policies, with the overall aim of ending youth homelessness.

Advertisment

Centrepoint began working across the Bradford district in late last year, developing some pathways for young people deemed at risk of homelessness.

The Duke of Cambridge has visited the charity many times since he became the patron in 2005. Last year, he met staff and young people and got involved in a variety of activities, including a game of table tennis.
