Young People Support is paramount!


All our Young People have our fully dedicated Support Staff in place 24 hours a day to talk and listen whenever they need it, often disguised as informal chats through the regular cooking sessions, who doesn’t feel better after a good hearty meal?

We also encourage learning life skills to ensure our young People can live happy and independent along withe vital guidance and technical advice when it comes to helping make a start on the career path, such as  drafting Curriculum Vitae’s for potential apprenticeships or job applications.

Many of our Young People often need to take part in important meetings where our Support Team are always at hand if needed.  All Young People are supported and encouraged to register with local GP’s, Dentist and Opticians to ensure good standards of health care.


Also, our Support Team give assistance and guidance with completing and filing any and all available benefit claims that each Young Persons is entitled too, ensuring that they have a fair standard of living.  When necessary, our Support staff are on hand 24/7 to help our Young People refer to other external services such as YDAP, CYPS CHAMS.

Communication is 'Key'

All our Support Staff understand the importance of communication and know the benefits of Team Work.  As such all staff monitor and update not only the YMCA ChurchView entire staffing team but also send timely and relevant updates on the service users to their Social Workers.  Also, staff are at hand to facilitate any meetings at ChurchView, making a fab cup of tea when the situation calls for it.

“Young People are at the heart of everything we do”

The time and attention that our Young People whom come to stay with us at YMCA ChurchView benefit from is an amazing start for their transition from leaving care situations on into the world today, guided safely and attentively by our support team.  They are offered not only a place to call home, a private and a communal space to relax and feel welcomed, but a wealth of understanding and kindness that will put them firmly on the right track to manage all that life will offer them in the next stage of their lives. 

Young People are at the heart of what we do

Staff here are some of the industries most dedicated and hard working that there is and the image above is just an ordinary day at our ChurchView site where one of our young people is enjoying a guitar and drum session with our Housing Support Worker; not bad for a first try, well done all.

Self Image is important to our Young People

We care about our Young People and also what our young people care about; staff alway make time to encourage our young people to feel good about themselves, to be confident in who they are and what they can offer today’s world.

Here’s just a few of our images from a brief hair dressing session with another one of our multi talented staff members; needless to say the results were very welcomed.
