Charity information

South London Ymca

South London YMCA was formed from the coming together of historic YMCAs, Croydon YMCA Housing Association, and the YMCA of Lambeth, Lewisham and Southwark in 2005. In 2013, Earls Court YMCA merged with us and we now operate a number of supported housing projects and health related services in the Boroughs of Croydon, Lambeth, Bromley and Kensington and Chelsea.

We are a major provider of supported accommodation for homeless people in London, and have been doing this sort of work since 1861. We aim to help people to find opportunities to change their lives and futures. We also work with people with specific needs around alcohol/drug misuse issues and mental health.

We offer support to all communities, regardless of any religious belief.
