YMCA Bournemouth is delighted to announce success in attracting funding support from Allchurches Trust following a £20,000 award from the charitable organisation.

Targeting young people particularly adversely impacted by Covid-19, our Innovation Hub, based at Townsend Estate, will support young people living in this area, which is amongst the 10% most deprived in the UK.

This essential income will be used for core costs including the recruitment of a part-time member of staff to lead a process of innovation, seeking to address local and wider problems in society to provide new solutions through empowering the mind, bodies and spirits of young people.
