Funding for senior staff salaries to develop YMCA Crewe's Life Academy programme and prepare for replication. (360G-phf-30671)
YMCA Crewe is a 55-bed foyer (a form of supported housing for young people at risk of homelessness) which enables 150 young people annually to work towards improved employability, health and wellbeing and independent living through a comprehensive “Life Academy” model. Our grant will enable it to develop systems and procedures to prepare to replicate the model more widely. This follows a successful pilot working with a large London YMCA. The organisation was described as a "beacon" regionally in its approach to working with and involving young people, and the range of activities and courses it offers.
