City YMCA passionately believe that every young person should have the opportunity to build a future of their own choosing. They provide accommodation to those made homeless and a range of interventions for young people in our communities.

Their holistic approach covers young people aged 12 to 25, of which 25% have left care and 15% run-away from home. The rest are either deemed at-risk from parents, are trying to divert from crime or have fallen on hard times.

They have been working with young people for the last 45 years, have housed over 10,000 and enabled another 20,000 to become meaningfully engaged.
