Mansfield YMCA provides accommodation for 22 young single homeless men and women aged 16-25. The accommodation is intended for short-term use only, but there is some flexibility in the maximum length of stay. Advice and support on a range of issues is ongoing, including faith, cooking, budgeting, life skills, sexual health, family planning and accessing employment and training to prepare them for move on.
Mansfield YMCA practices a multi agency approach to its support, liaising closely with other services including probationary, drug/alcohol workers, counselling, local housing associations and Social Services.
Service Users are able to address their individual needs and aspirations through one to one sessions and are given the opportunities to access resources on site or externally.
