YMCA Black Country supported lodgings believes that every young person should have a safe place to stay. We aim to provide permanent host homes for homeless youngsters, and seek volunteer drivers and chaperones to help us get them there. We also would appreciate anyone who wishes to volunteer to do leaflets dropping, some admin work in the office, assist with host recruitment/ promotional events and run fundraising activities.
