Every year YMCA Exeter provides over 80 young people with a place to live and helps many more find accommodation that is suitable to them. We have accommodation in Exeter which includes our main residential centre on St David’s Hill, four houses near Sandy Park Stadium and one house in Beacon Heath. Each house is a truly unique place to live and offers young people between the ages of 16 & 29 the opportunity to make a fresh start and move on into their futures.
Our accommodation is specifically for young people who are coming out of homelessness and would like the support of a loving community to move forward. Some of our residents have been sleeping rough and others may have been sofa surfing or living in a tent or car. YMCA isn’t just a place to stay though. Our Link Workers supports residents during their stay at YMCA so they can develop their personal, mental and social wellbeing. These areas include:
- finding a GP
- employment advice
- emotional & physical wellbeing
- managing debt
- money advice
- managing disabilities
- maintaining accommodation
If you think that YMCA Exeter might be a good option for you, or someone you know, then you can get in touch with us. You will be invited to a tour of St David’s Hill and be given an application form. We may then invite you for an interview and if you are successful, we will offer you a place on the waiting list.
