NEW HACKNEY HOSTEL OPENS
A redundant Care Home has been given a new lease of life as Hackney's first hostel for homeless young people. Monarch Court is possibly the first new hostel to open in London for years. With the numbers of young people being made homless in London doubling over the last two years, the 87 beds will help nearly 2,000 young homeless people get their lives back on track over the next 15 years.
City YMCA London would like to thank the Greater London Authority, City Bridge Trust and the South Hackney Parochial Foundation for their partnership in this success.
