YMCA Milton Keynes opens Warm Space for all community


YMCA Milton Keynes opens its doors as a ‘Warm Space’

With the cost of living rising and fuel poverty at an all-time high, this winter, YMCA MK will be opening its doors to welcome members of the community. YMCA ‘Warm Space’ offers people a place to come for free to enjoy a safe, comfortable and friendly environment. Staff and volunteers will be working on the front line to make this winter much easier for the Milton Keynes community.

In 2020, amidst the global pandemic, YMCA opened its £18.5 million building to house 242 young people at risk of homelessness. We deliver a holistic, person-centred approach when working with every resident, whilst offering therapeutic and physical activities to improve skills and confidence.

This bespoke youth work is not limited to the YMCA campus. Building on the success of The Hospital Navigator Scheme, YMCA MK is now expanding to reach vulnerable people across the local community.

Supporting people in times of need is at the core of what we do, so inviting people in from the cold to make the most of our new building, is a great way to kick off our community development plans.

Those using the Warm Space can expect a cosy and comfortable environment, hot drinks, board games and great conversation.

Opens 13 December

Please come and visit us Tuesdays and Wednesdays 10am-3pm

You can support YMCA MK this winter by volunteering as a ‘Warm Space Welcomer’.
