Why isn’t YMCA Exeter working with the local council to sort the main homeless problem in this area?
YMCA Exeter is committed to creating supportive, inclusive, and energising communities where all young people can truly belong, contribute, and thrive. The development of Sidwell Studios is in direct response to the need for local young people to be able to move on into independent living, with affordable accommodation.
Our projects are specifically aimed at the prevention of homelessness and intervening early so that that young people do not end up sleeping rough and are provided with a better alternative.
We are saddened by the number of people living rough in Exeter and we support all the work that Exeter City Council and the many charitable organisations are doing to improve the lives of adults living on the streets.
