Housing is not just about providing a warm, dry space. It’s about providing a living space which is safe and supports the individual so that they can grow, develop and equip themselves to move on through their life journey.

When individuals move into YMCA accommodation, if they need support, it’s there. Our accommodation is basic, but clean, warm and comfortable.


We take referrals from Merton Borough Council and No Second Night Out (to YMCA Wimbledon) and Royal Borough of Kingston, Kingston Churches Action on Homelessness (to YMCA Surbiton). For YMCA Walthamstow, we accept referrals from referral agencies, please contact applications@ymcaeastlondon.org.uk.

Contact the Homeless Unit in your borough, who may then refer you to us.
