YMCA St Paul’s Group is a leading provider of specialist support accommodation to Young and vulnerable people across London and beyond. Alongside over 1,200 units of accommodation we also provide a wide range of children’s, youth and health and wellbeing services in the communities we serve.

We are always looking for Board and committee members to help lead the Charity and deliver positive outcomes for those we serve. By applying your strategic skills and experience, gained either on a board or working at a senior level, you will provide the challenge and support necessary to ensure that we can continue to positively impact the lives of thousands of people across London and beyond.
