City YMCA London is an independent charity helping young people build a future of their own choosing. 

Over the past forty years they have helped 30,000 isolated, homeless young people struggling with family breakdown, school exclusion, poor mental health and drug and alcohol problems. From emergency beds through to supported longer-term accommodation our hostel occupancy currently runs at 98%, a stark demonstration of the need for this provision. Please note that City YMCA London do not have emergency beds.
