The Y works with homeless young people in Leicester.  Too many of them are living traumatic lives and experiencing family breakdown, bereavement, depression or abuse.

With your support we can offer them a safe place to call home and help them create a positive future for themselves.

The Y is a diverse community organisation whose mission is to empower young people to achieve skills and independence through access to supported accommodation, advice, education, sports and arts.

We also provide support to homeless adults from The Y Support Project and offer enriching activities through The Y Theatre and creative arts programmes.
