The YMCA is the largest and oldest youth charity in the world. It believes that all young people deserve to have a safe place to live and the opportunity to reach their full potential. The YMCA’s vision is of an inclusive Christian Movement, transforming communities so that all young people truly belong, contribute and thrive.
YMCA in Stoke On Trent has undergone a multi million pound transformation, creating new independent housing, sporting facilities and refurbishing existing housing stock. I spent two days there last November and met loads of inspiring people, both service users and staff. It was a pleasure spending a couple of days with them all.
