The Young Person's VillageThe Young Person's Village is a youth campus made up of 36 flats and a separate activities centre. The flats provide young people ready to move on from hostel accommodation with opportunities for independent living. All flats (which include four flats for disabled young people and four two bedroom apartments) have open-plan living spaces and bathrooms.
But the Young Person's Village provides more than accommodation. It is about youth development and broadening the experiences of young people in a friendly environment. There are volunteering opportunities and an advice and chill-out area. In the activities centre young people have access to a climbing wall, gym, five-court sports hall and outdoor pitch. They also have the use of cricket nets, a boxing club, dance classes, archery and indoor roller-skating and there is a "fun zone" with a video game suite, Internet café and IT suite.
The learning and sports facilities are open to the public as the aim is to make The Village a hub for the wider community and to raise awareness of the YMCA's work locally.
