Nottinghamshire YMCA provide living accommodation for young people who’ve been homeless. The charity promotes healthy lifestyles, runs activities and offers support to help them live successful, independent lives.
LandAid awarded a grant of £51,600 to enable the charity to renovate a 19-bed hostel, along with a three-bed house on the same site, to create safe accommodation for young people, include care leavers, people with mental health and substance misuse issues.
The project renovates nineteen one-bed studio flats and communal areas, where young people can gain skills to enable them to live independently, including budgeting, cooking, training, employability skills.
The newly-renovated house will provide accommodation for three young people who are ready to move on from the hostel and achieve a new level of independence.
