Who we are

YWCA Yorkshire

Putting young women, children and families at the heart of what we do

YWCA Yorkshire is a registered charity that believes that young women, children and families deserve the very best opportunity to thrive, prosper and reach their full potential.

Through a range of accommodation and support services, we seek to empower individuals to live independent, happy and fulfilled lives; to take responsibility for their own futures and overcome some of the obstacles that have prevented them from moving forward positively.

Within our supported accommodation projects, our family support services and our range of specialist programmes, YWCA Yorkshire works in partnership with our clients to enable them to achieve their full potential as resilient and confident individuals, skilled and competent parents and fully informed and engaged community members.

YWCA Yorkshire has been providing services to women, children and families locally since the 1940’s. From our first women’s hostel in Sheffield, we have continued to develop our expertise throughout Yorkshire and now offer advice, support, life-skills training, parenting skills and family mediation to hundreds of families in the region.
