This includes conventional youth work, detached youth projects, supported housing, and targeted projects.

'I have been a Trustee of CITY YMCA, London since a merger took place in 2005. I am currently serving as the elected Chair. I see the role as a volunteer Trustee as being able to give guidance, share experience and provide advice on policy and strategy at a Governance level. This enables City YMCA, London to achieve its vision, in helping, assisting and encouraging young people to progress. The role of Trustee can be most fulfilling, in both the time given and in seeing the results of young peoples lives being positively changed: enabling them to develop and grow into responsible adult hood; into independent living and; to being an asset to the multi cultural society they live in.’ Robert Thompson, Chair of the Board of Trustees
