I have chosen the Burton on Trent & District YMCA as the recipient
charity for this year's fund raising.
200 young people (under 25) seek their help with serious housing
problems and relationship worries each year. One of the strategic aims
of Burton upon Trent and district YMCA is to end youth homelessness in
They work to achieve this by helping to prevent further young people
becoming homeless, and by extending the range of provision in the Burton
area. A mediation officer is working with young people and their
families to see if family relationships can be improved whilst we’re
looking to place young people with host families if they are unable to
live with their own family.
