About Us

YMCA MK is an independent charity and an approved social housing provider. We affiliate to YMCA England and Wales.

We opened our doors in 1981 and since that time we’ve helped over 10,000 young people. Our accommodation and support has helped them get their life back on track and play a fulfilling role within our local community.

At YMCA MK, we provide services to approximately 500 young people who are in need of affordable accommodation and those who are homeless or sofa-surfing.

An exciting phase in our history

In February 2020, YMCA MK as we all know it will change. Our new campus will provide accommodation for 199 residents, 50 more than at present, together with training and meeting rooms for our support, well-being and learning programmes. We’ll also have a number of units for social enterprises that will provide work experience, training and employment opportunities for our residents and a revenue stream for us.
