Our community based service that includes networking, training and consultancy, volunteering and support.


Y’s Links is the community arm of our training and education service. Our aim is to provide a community learning function that incorporates YMCA’s ‘mind, body, spirit’ ethos. We offer a range of training programmes that cover key issues around homelessness and young adult vulnerability. Some of these programmes are FREE to attend and some are at affordable prices. We are currently in the process of finalising our Winter Training Plan 2017, which will be available here very shortly. In the meantime, please contact learning@ymcaeastlondon.org.uk if you require further information.

Also, within our community we work to develop a network of learning providers and voluntary sector organisations in Waltham Forest and surrounding boroughs, in view of sharing and creating new learning resources together. If you have any ideas of how we can work together, whether that is on new or existing projects, we would love to discuss partnership working with you. Please do get in touch by contacting the Learning & Skills Team on 020 3598 1531 or email nansah@ymcaeastlondon.org.uk. Alternatively, please email your details for inclusion on our mailing list should you wish to receive information about future services and projects that may be of interest.
