Chester Le Street YMCA

Chester le Street YMCA was officially opened in May 2012 and offers fully furnished accommodation to 16 to 35 year olds. The project has 14 fully furnished, shared flats, which accommodates 30 people.  Tenants are initially given a 6 month Assured Short hold tenancy and within this time they are provided with some support to enable them to lead a more independent lifestyle.

Move on accommodation is also available in our outreach projects in Fencehouses and Houghton le Spring.
