The Guardian have given invaluable support to our work for many years, with staff providing workshops and careers training for our homeless young people as well as frequently volunteering at the centre.   

We were delighted therefore when they approached us with the idea of holding a special exhibition devoted to our 50th anniversary at their headquarters in King’s Cross.


Planned by a dedicated and skilled team at the Guardian, the multimedia exhibition covers our half a century fighting youth homelessness, from the founding of the centre by Lord Longford, through some of the thousands of lives we've transformed to portraits of and contributions from the young people we are supporting today.

Portraits taken by photographer David McCoy show some of the 16-21 year olds we support against a simple white background, alongside quotes from them about their situation.

A launch event generously hosted by the Guardian on 15 November was attended by many of our friends, supporters and partner organisations. Our famous red sofa was of course on hand for a few photos, and will be on site for the duration of the exhibition, which is now open to the public until 7 December!


The exhibition will be open to the public between 10am and 6pm daily until 7 December at the Guardian Gallery.
