Help local people out of homelessness
Facilitated by our partnership with YMCA England and Wales, you can become a Roomsponsor to support local young people at our YMCA. When you sign-up via the links on this page, your donation goes towards supporting individuals out of homelessness across Nottingham, Mansfield, Worksop and East Riding.
In 2020/21, we housed over 720 vulnerable young people (under 35s) in Nottinghamshire alone. Your donations make an incredible difference to the lives of those we support, helping us to provide safe accommodation, fulfilling life skills opportunities and personable, caring support.
What to expect
As a Roomsponsor you’ll get real, regular feedback from young people who are turning their lives around, thanks to your donation.
Roomsponsor donations are managed through Direct Debit, and are facilitated by YMCA England and Wales.
As a thank you for supporting us, you’ll also receive a welcome pack and thank you gift.
