Become a data provider

Help us turn youth homelessness data into knowledge

What does it mean to become a data provider?

We are working collaboratively with local councils, charities and housing providers across the country to build a better picture of youth homelessness. The more data we have the closer we get to ending youth homelessness.

If you work with homeless young people you can help!

Becoming a data provider simply means you'll have access to upload your data straight to this beta version of the Youth Homelessness Databank and be able to view it alongside data from other providers across the UK. 

How do I share my data on the site?


1. Register 

Email us at: yhdatabank@centrepoint.org with the following information:

  • Your name, 
  • The name of your organisation, 
  • Your email address, 
  • The local authority area/s you work in 

That's it! We'll set you up with a login and you can complete our data request and upload your data (see below). 


2. Complete the data request
