YMCA Parsons Green is a hostel in west London, offering 27 rooms to men and women in a universal setting.
Residents are aged over 18 and stay for around three years. Some people are referred from YMCA Surbiton and YMCA Wimbledon, while others are self referrals. Referral agencies can apply using this form. The building was given to YMCA back in the 1980s by David Ensor. Sharon Del Risco has been manager of YMCA Parsons Green for the last 20 years.
Most of the residents work part time whilst studying, and they share bathroom and kitchen facilities along with a communal room (which includes a piano and a small library).
