Our Impact

Youth homelessness cannot be fixed by housing alone.  Each young person comes with their own childhood history and their own complex coping mechanisms for the world that dealt them a bad hand.  They are not always ready to open up, much less start a course or get a job.  There is no one size fits all solution, rather The Y must help each person take the many little steps on their own journey of growth.

Building the skills and resilience to leave homelessness behind for good.

During 2016-17…



young people were helped to find a place to live in Leicester or Leicestershire



young people had a safe place to call home every night. We are part of the YMCA family, which provides 9,831 beds across the UK every night.
