Through our YMCA Key College we provide a whole host of accredited training courses for young people aged 16-19 and up to 24 for those with an Education Health Care Plan. Predominately supporting young people where mainstream education has not been suitable. We support over 150 students each year.
Our charities vision is ‘enabling young people and communities to thrive’: so they can fulfil their dreams; have a safe space to learn and grow; feel equipped to belong, contribute and prosper; and feel supported to be active in body, mind and spirit. Together we create places where people flourish.
