Housing & Education

Southend YMCA offers supported accommodation for homeless, vulnerable or young people at risk aged between 16–25.

Access to Southend YMCA accommodation is through the Southend Access gateway referral panel – this multi-agency panel reviews the needs and aspirations of all potential applicants and matches potential residents to supported housing providers.
