Our Ambition East Midlands project is now in it’s final year.

The project had strict eligibility criteria individuals needed to be:

  • Aged 18 to 24 (care leavers must be 21+)
  • Not in education, employment, training
  • Single homeless not in priority need
  • A strategic priority for local authority support but unable to access supported accommodation, for example; because of previous difficulties, security issues, complex needs or lack of specialist provision

YMCA Derbyshire are proud of the excellent outcomes the team have achieved. To date:

  • 152 young people have been supported to move into suitable housing
  • 47 Young people have entered education
  • 43 young people have entered employment
  • 30 young people have accessed volunteering opportunities

We are no longer accepting referrals to this project however we are continuing to support our current client base.
