An overview of YMCA Norfolk
YMCA Norfolk is a local independent charity supporting young people and families affected by homelessness. We provide accommodation, positive activities, life skills and preparation for independent living, which helps break the cycle of homelessness.
Our main activities include:
- Housing and Accommodation for up to 240 young people every night
- Health and Wellbeing awareness sessions for young people and professionals;
- Training and Education for young people, developing confidence, life skills and employment skills
- Family Work that supports 290 families and provides specialist interventions to families in crisis
- Youth and Community work including delivery of youth clubs across Norfolk.
Our mission is to transform young lives. Our vision is to be an inclusive Christian organisation, transforming communities across Norfolk so that young people truly belong, contribute and thrive.
Our main activity is the provision of accommodation and support for homeless young people aged 16 to 25; centred on our belief that every one deserves a safe place to live. We focus on young people’s holistic development, supporting them with practical skills and emotional resilience so that they can fulfil their potential, become independent, good citizens, and contribute to their communities.
We also provide a safe home for 34 single parent families and support a total of 292 families across the county. We have a dedicated Families’ Team which helps vulnerable families as an alternative to care, preventing family breakdown and empowering them to take steps towards being reunified along with a Youth and Community Team who work with young, disadvantaged people in our services and others across Norfolk to give them basic life, health and employability skills.
