Your donations help us continue working to support our young residents in creating the futures they deserve. With 392 bedrooms, spread over our three residents’ homes, we help over 620 young people get out of homelessness every year. Our approach is holistic. As well as food and affordable accommodation, the YMCA offers residents personal support, access to training for education and employment, life skills and recreational activities.

We appreciate the enthusiasm and commitment of all our donors and supporters. Donating via JustGiving is a safe, secure and cost-efficient way for us to raise funds, especially now that they no longer charge commission. Please contact us with any query by emailing
