About Us:

YMCA Wellington have worked with young people in the local area since 1859!

We currently provide supported housing for 39 young people aged 16-25. The support can last for up to 2 years.

Our tenants often come from extremely chaotic situations. Family relationships may have broken down and some may have been forced to sleep rough or have fallen victim to all kinds of exploitation.

Your support will be used to directly improve the lives of our customers through our Step Up programme and not to cover administration, management or utility costs.


Step in is a fund we have to help new tenants step in to independent living

We provide starter packs for our young people to make sure they have the basics that they need to look after themselves in the early days of a tenancy.

Step in packs could include:

Brand new bedding



Cooking utensils

Basic food


Cleaning items


Laundry basket

Some of our tenants move in with little more than the clothes on their back and with benefit payments taking a few weeks to come through, Step In packs mean there’s no delay in developing life skills. It also gives tenants pride in their homes and in themselves as they have everything they need from day 1.


The step up programme rewards tenants for taking part in YMCA activities and opportunities and for ‘stepping up’ to being a good tenant and neighbour.

Rewards include:

Toiletry sets

Cleaning kit

Love2shop vouchers

Gas and electric credit

£50 towards driving lessons

£100 furniture from Telford Community Store

Provisional driving licence


Step out is a fund tenants can access if they need help with clothing, transport or equipment for work, education, a hobby or a special event.

We provide whatever our tenants need to step out in the community.


Thank you for your support!
