Our Housing mission is to provide an effective, professional and empowering support service that meets individuals’ needs so that they have as good a chance as possible of living independently.
We aim to provide high quality, well-maintained and well-managed accommodation in a safe and secure environment. We currently provide 88 units of supported accommodation for people aged 16 to 64 who are homeless and vulnerable, providing specialist support to those at risk. These include five Crashpads for those aged 16 and 17 facing a housing emergency.
Our dedicated team of support workers provide help and guidance in matters to do with welfare rights, benefits, alcohol and drugs misuse, mental health, as well as support in finding a future home.
We are not a 'hostel' in the traditional sense, but a development community. If you stay with us, we expect a real commitment to further education, training, volunteering or paid employment. In return, we'll be with you every step of the way. We recognise each of our residents as a member of our YMCA family, and our job is to empower you to take the necesasary steps towards an independent and fulfilling future.
