Funding at a glance

Amount: £158,656 grant
Approved: 2016

YMCA Glenrothes provides a wide range of support services, including hostel accommodation and flats in the community for homeless people.

Funding from the Nationwide Foundation is helping YMCA Glenrothes provide homes for eight people. The tenants are homeless or at risk of homelessness, either living in temporary accommodation or being at risk of eviction. The tenants can help design their homes and have the opportunity to improve their education and stabilise their lives. YMCA Glenrothes promotes a holistic approach to living independently and signposts tenants to other agencies for help to overcome more complex problems.

The Nationwide Foundation’s grant is being used for some of the renovation and salary costs.
