Our work with Centrepoint


For your client, a mortgage means so much more than just a roof over their head. It's a way of getting somewhere to call their own. A safe haven. A home.


But 150,000 young people asked for help with homelessness last year alone. For some, having a permanant roof over their head is like a distant dream.


Every year the charity Centrepoint helps more than 9,000 homeless 16-25 year olds in the UK with a safe place to live, health support and access to education and training.  Centrepoint is more than just a place to stay. It helps homeless young people into a home and a job and equips them with the independent living skills needed to escape homelessness for good.


What we're doing to help


£25 to Centrepoint for every new mortgage customer


Each £25 will go towards funding The Centrepoint Helpline, where people can get in touch for advice or guidance for themselves, or someone they know. We'll also give to their new Manchester hub, which recently opened its doors to Central and Greater Manchester's young homeless community.


Chosen as our charity partner


Centrepoint has been chosen as our charity partner. Whether it's a dress-down day or a half-marathon, we'll support our colleagues to raise money for this worthy cause.
