Welcome to the residents’ page.
Here we’ve pulled together information that we hope you find useful whilst living with us at YMCA St Paul’s Group, as well as links to websites to help your job and/or housing search, support with your faith and your life skills. We hope you will find them useful. If you think there is something missing, please do let your support worker know or feel free to send us your suggestion using the link below.
You’re warmly invited to join our virtual reviews from 4pm – 5pm every Wednesday by video call on Zoom – Book Club!
Contact Progressionteam2@ymcaspg.org for a digital copy of the book.
Life Skills and Learning
The Progression Team work across all YMCA St Paul’s Group sites to support you in building your skills, confidence and creativity through workshops, one to one sessions, drama and other creative workshops, events and much much more during your time in YMCA. This section gives you videos, online learning and worksheets for you to do yourself but do chat with us or your local Housing Support Team or staff if you’d like some help or to print something off.
Other sites have different resources available – often supported through volunteers, community groups and the Housing Support staff. Please speak with the Housing Support staff if you are interested in engaging in community activities at your site.
Learning and Training
As an inclusive Christian organisation YMCA St Paul’s Group would like to help you – Mind, Body and Spirit. The Chaplaincy team is around to chat in a one to one, catch us if you’d like a friend to go to the gym with, or join one of our groups to meet others and think about life.
We run frequent chaplaincy sessions at YMCA Surbiton, YMCA Wimbledon, YMCA South Ealing and YMCA Walthamstow. We also visit each of the housing sites regularly.
Here are some simple images, guides and chaplaincy sessions to help you connect with your faith.
The Housing teams, at most sites, are your first port of call if you have a question or problem, or if you want to share some good news. This webpage section aims to give you some details about housing, rent, benefits etc. and what to do if things change in your life, who to contact and what needs to happen. If your site does not have a housing team, please speak to on site staff for guidance.
Local Authority Websites
Here are the policies with all the information about the terms of staying in YMCA St Paul’s Group Housing. You’ll find information about your rent, conduct, visitors and much more. These are long documents which are here for your reference. Do speak to your housing support officer if you have any questions.
The Progression Team will work holistically with you to support your journey through a programme of training and activities. These explore wellbeing, involvement and empowerment, independent living, employment, education and personal development.
Make a self referral to our Progression Teams for one to one support with your personal development.
