Y-Street supports young people and adults to overcome the most significant barriers in their lives and provides opportunities to live a fulfilling and prosperous life. The project has been funded by Lloyds Bank Foundation for 3 years to provide intensive support and opportunities for people that are at risk of becoming, or are homeless.

This project supports people in all aspects of their life, providing the support they need to help them maintain suitable accommodation. The project offers opportunities to build positive and trusting relationships that focus on supporting people with emotional wellbeing and practical support.

Many of the people that Y-Street supports are hidden homeless, who are not regularly on the streets, but live transient lives between poor accommodation that is substandard or temporary. Many will sofa-surf staying in friends or associates houses for short periods of time before moving on.

Y-Street and YMCA Swansea offer a safe space where people can explore issues affecting their life looking at: –

  • Health and Wellbeing
  • Housing and Tenancy Support
  • Mentoring and Coaching
  • Emotional and Practical Support
  • Realistic Goals and Personal Action Plans
  • Access to all of YMCA Services
  • Free Gym Membership & Wellbeing Support
