Nottinghamshire YMCA is pleased to launch new supported accommodation to provide temporary housing provision for vulnerable adults in Worksop.
Who do we support?
YMCA provides safe and welcoming accommodation for single people (aged 18 – 35 years) through a mix of self-contained flats. All flats are fully furnished to a high standard and vary in size with shared lounges and kitchens for up to four people.
An office for YMCA staff is located on site (93 Bridge Street) to ensure support is always on hand for residents or members of the community. Plans to develop transitional homes are also on the horizon to help more local homeless adults reintegrate into independent living.
Each resident receives tailored support from the charity’s staff. We also work with specialist agencies to provide additional support around substance misuse, mental health or disabilities. With our mission to develop mind, body and spirit at the heart of all our supported housing provisions, it is our top priority that residents are treated with respect and dignity at all times along their journey to regaining their independence.
- 7 self-contained flats – supported accommodation
- 22 bed spaces
- Shared flats for adults (aged 18-35), supported by staff on site
- Transitional homes
Apply for housing support
If you are at risk of homeless or already homeless you can apply for accommodation. Anyone applying for supported housing is asked to complete an application form. You can complete this form online using the link below. Alternatively, a print version is available from the YMCA office (93 Bridge Street), or by contacting our housing team on 01909 813 136.
How to get a referral
We accept referrals from agencies. Due to the volume of requests, each applicant is interviewed prior to being offered either a room or having their name put on the waiting list for accommodation.
If you are completing an application form on behalf of someone else, please ensure the applicant brings two forms of identification with them to the meeting to help speed up the process.
Support our homeless residents
As a charity that relies on the kind generosity of our community supporters, any donations, large or small, will be warmly received at your local YMCA Housing reception. Our residents are grateful for any contributions of food, clothes, household goods including furniture, arts and crafts materials, diaries or anything else you can think to donate.
If you would prefer to make a monetary contribution, please donate online or call 01909 813 136 for details.
We would love to hear from volunteers who wish to get involved and make a positive difference to the lives of vulnerable people across Nottinghamshire.
