About Us

We are a charity based in Richmond, North Yorkshire and we provide supported accommodation for young people aged 16 - 25.  We have two properties which are also in Richmond and we provide accommodation for up to 14 young people at a time, who may have been homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.  

Our building in Richmond Market Place has recently become a newly developed Youth Centre called New Horizons.  We are in the process of developing this project but we hope in the near future to offer training opportunities as well as structured youth services for local young people.  Keep checking back on the website for further updates about this brand new service.

Here at the office we have an open door policy, which means that any time during our working hours you can call into our main office in the centre of Richmond and we'll do our best to help you with any issues you may be having. If we can't help directly we will always try to point you in the right direction of an agency that is more appropriate and we try very hard to provide a relaxed, laid back atmosphere for people to call in and have a brew, a game of pool or just a natter!

We are a small team of just five people, who you can find out about on our "People" page of the website.  We have one Chief Executive, a Housing Manager, a Youth Centre Co-orinator, a Youth Participation Worker and a Housing Support Worker, who are all based at our Richmond office.  We all have an important role to play in the day-to-day runnings of our charity and all interact with both residents, clients, trustees, the general public and other organisations.

We are a registered charity with a board of trustees.  We are also linked to YMCA England by both name and by our shared values which are based on a fellowship, respect, freedom, acceptance, understanding, openness, fairness and honesty.  You can read our mission statement in the next pages of the website, which will give you a more in-depth idea of what it is we strive to achieve.
