To mark the charity's 50th anniversary William officially opened new apprenticeship accommodation in south London, meeting the young people who will live there and companies who are giving them apprenticeship training to help get them into full time work.

Prince William said: "It might seem an odd thing to say at a milestone event such as this, but I hope that Centrepoint will not need to be around in another 50 years.

"But it is reassuring to know that when young people are at their lowest point, Centrepoint's team are there to help."
