What do we really know about the young people’s homeless charity Centrepoint?

It was established in Soho in 1969 by Reverend Kenneth Leech.

Reverend Leech wanted young homeless people to have a night shelter.

Reverend Leech knew the Kray twins.

Reverend Leech was the “advisor on exorcism and the occult” to the London Bishops.

Many young people who go to Centrepoint are vulnerable and have been in and out of the care system.

Many young people who go to Centrepoint could disappear and nobody would know about it.

Centrepoint’s full name is Centrepoint Soho Ltd.

Centrepoint also has a trading company known as CP Trading Ltd.

CP Trading used to be known as SPEED 4477 Ltd.

Millions of pounds of money is given to Centrepoint from donations and also Government departments.
