We believe every young person should have someone they can trust.  YMCA Dulverton Group aims to support young people through good and difficult times through a range of services including our supported accommodation.

Support and Advice services are accessible through our Accommodation and Support Hubs and include:

We aim to support people aged over 16 years old with a housing need through our Accommodation and Support Hubs which offer a range of free services including:

●  Housing support and advice, including emergency housing
●  Employment, training and education opportunities

In each case, our aim is to enable the individual to grow and develop in every aspect of their life.

We provide a floating support service to support young people aged 16-25 years old and families who need extra help to sustain a tenancy and/or achieve independence.

We provide advocacy support to a young person to enable them to:
