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 HawkerYMCA Surbiton;YMCA Wimbledon and Hampton Pool, providing a range of services including AccommodationHealth and WellbeingFamily and Children’s WorkTraining 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.

A message from CEO, Richard James

The last few months has been focused on our new sites and our new services.

From April this year we will be bringing into the family of YMCA LSW projects two new centres of operation: YMCA Mitcham and YMCA White House. YMCA Mitcham comprises the world’s first Y:Cube housing scheme as well as a range of community health and wellbeing projects in local schools.

The YMCA White House is a community centre in Hampton North that the YMCA will be taking on under a management agreement from the Hampton on Thames Community Association. You can read more about these operations on our website and see how we plan on meeting more people at their point of need and allowing them to find life in all its fullness.
