Survey Results 2021

A series of surveys are being developed by the team to get an initial idea of what former children of Centrepoint Community would like to see happen to bring about restorative change. The results will be published on this page as they are made available. 


The survey was done in the second half of 2021.

July - Sept 2021

Q1 - How old were you when you lived (or had significant visiting experiences if a child/youth) at Centrepoint? (39 responses)

Child (0-12)

Teenager (13-17)

Young adult (18-25)

Adult 25+

None of the above - I have no association with Centrepoint

Respondents could tick more than one age category (to allow for the fact that people's years of experience may have spanned more than one age category), so the % number will come to greater than 100%

Q2 - How do you feel about the idea of a restoration process for former children of Centrepoint? (39 responses)

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by mud and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and short-coming; but does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotion; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.
