Every year we help over 500 young homeless people in their time of need, providing them with the skills and confidence they need to turn their lives around.
‘I started living at the YMCA in 2012 and it has been one of the most memorable moments of my life. During my stay I learnt a lot of things which will continue to help me stay independent and focussed in life. With the help of my support worker, I was able to focus on my priorities and also received lots of encouragement towards my studies.
Currently, I live independently in a one-bedroom flat, and I am in the final year of my degree program and hope to be able to apply for a full time job soon.’
Sadly we have over 120 young homeless people on our waiting list at any one time, and we need your help and support if we are to continue to provide our life changing services. There are various ways individuals, companies and organisations can support our work, by:
- Making a one off donation
- Taking part in a fundraising event
- Becoming a corporate partner
- Awarding us a grant via Trust or Foundation
Whichever you choose, your support really will make a difference to the lives of some of the most disadvantaged young people in our society. Thank you!
