SPACE2… CONNECT is a safe digital platform for you. We have created this space for young people to access our services and engage with our Youth Workers and other young people as a way to overcome social distancing.
YMCA Youth Workers are available to offer support and advice around a range of issues such as job employability, health and wellbeing, independent living skills and any other issues you may be facing. If we can’t help you, we will signpost you to organisations that can offer you support.
