About this cause
YMCA is the only provider of dedicated supported housing to young people aged 18-35 in Milton Keynes. We provide accommodation and support, working with young people who have been homeless, or who are at risk of becoming homeless, to turn their lives around. Our aim is to focus on our resident’s strengths and assets and support them as they work towards a sustainable and independent future.
How this cause brings people in the community together
Sport England and The Mental Health Foundation have found that sport can reduce stress and anxiety and improve mood and self esteem. Sport will also encourage our YMCA community to come together as a team, fostering a sense of belonging and friendship. Physical activities will have a positive impact on our community as it allows residents to discharge feelings of anger, aggression and trauma.
