activities 1 - Resident Activities

We offer a wide range of social activities and events for residents to experience and enjoy.

At YMCA Walthamstow we have recently installed a dedicated residents’ zone where residents can go to relax and socialise. It includes cinema style television and IT areas and a chill out space, where residents can simply have a chat, read a book or play a game. All residents of YMCA Walthamstow also have access to our new Health & Wellbeing facilities.

In addition, we organise a range of trips and events, which are aimed at providing something for everyone to enjoy, whatever their interests are, and enabling our residents to share their experiences and build friendships with those who enjoy the same things as them. These have included trips to Southend’s Sea-Life Centre, manning our own float at Notting Hill Carnival and a resident led Christmas party.

We always consult our residents when planning activities or events to ensure that we are giving them what they want and are catering for their needs. Residents can join activity steering groups or make recommendations directly to their support workers.
