Increasing stability for people affected by homelessness.
YMCA Glenrothes recently secured three years funding for a new project to support people aged 16-50 in Glenrothes who are affected by homelessness. Y Academy offers a variety of learning opportunities which aim to improve health, confidence and increase the chances of individuals sustaining future tenancies.
Y Academy offers a six week rolling programme delivered within the Homeless Supported Accommodation in Glenrothes to make it accessible for individuals and encourage engagement from residents. Various local agencies contribute within the programme helping to increase individual’s access to future learning opportunities within the community. The Programme has a person centred approach therefore some activities are determined by the participants needs.
The Core Elements of the Programme include:
- Outdoor Activities
- Healthy Eating
- Understanding Mental Health and Well Being
- Tenancy Management
- Peer Support
