We are able to provide supported housing for many young people. We provide different types of accommodation and different levels of support dependent on the needs of each individual. Each type of accommodation in each location offers the same fundamental service but has unique facilities within the site and in the surrounding areas.
In Stowmarket we offer one type of YMCA Accommodation:
- Children and Young People’s Services Accommodation
Children and Young People’s Services Accommodation
Our CYPS (Children and Young People’s Services) Accommodation is specifically for Care Leavers who need daily support and are supported by Children and Young People’s Services.
Young people can stay in this accommodation for up to 18 months, and will gain the skills and confidence they need in order to move on to more independent accommodation.
The CYPS Accommodation is within a 3 storey building, with 8 en-suite rooms and two shared kitchens and living rooms, and shared laundry facilities. The small group of flats creates a small community that young people thrive in.
Our YMCA Accommodation is part of The Mix site with secure gated access. Young people have easy access to all the great facilities and support available at The Mix as well as the support of YMCA’s Accommodation team.
The young people will receive a high level of daily support delivered by our 24/7 Engagement Officers. The young people will have all food provided and the opportunity to cook together. There are boundaries and expectations for the CYPS Accommodation including a curfew.
