Welcome to YMCA London South West
YMCA London South West is a charitable organisation that has served the local community since 1874. Over the years we’ve moved buildings and changed our name but we’ve always strived to achieve our vision of being “a Christian charity where people can come as they are; be met at their point of need and come to know life in all its fullness”.
We work from four main centres: YMCA Hawker; YMCA Surbiton;YMCA Wimbledon and Hampton Pool, providing a range of services including Accommodation, Health and Wellbeing, Family and Children’s Work, Training and Education and Support and Advice.
We are the largest provider of housing for the homeless in South West London and last year we helped and housed over 500 people, many as young as 16 years old. As well as providing accommodation, we run a number of extra programmes, activities and courses that make a real difference to people in the local community.

Take the challenge – Sleep out and help us raise money to end homelessness in the local community!
Join the Sleep Easy Fundraising Challenge, YMCA LSW’s biggest fundraising event of the year on Friday 6th March 2015. There will be two events taking place at the Holy Trinity Church in Wimbledon and in the Memorial Gardens in Kingston upon Thames.
By ‘sleeping rough’ for one night, you will get a feel of how it is to live on the streets, but in a safe and organised environment. This year we will be raising funds towards Merton Winter Night Shelter, Kingston Churches Action on Homelessness and The Everyday Church.
