Impact Review 2018-2019
YMCA Newcastle has supported a record number of children and young people this year. 30 years ago, our research project with Newcastle University, ‘A Generation Without Hope’, led to our strategic decision to deliver youth work services targeted at those resident in disadvantaged areas.
While the needs of children and young people have changed drastically, the demand for our services and support is increasing each year. More young people are turning to us for help getting jobs and apprenticeships and, unfortunately, more are coming to us in crisis having been made homeless or victims of crime, or who are experiencing poor mental health.
This report tells the story of how we’ve helped those young people in need through images, numbers, figures and real-life stories.
