Funding at a glance

Amount: £158,656 grant
Approved: 2016
Status: Funding complete

YMCA Glenrothes provides a wide range of support services, including hostel accommodation and flats in the community for homeless people.

Funding from the Nationwide Foundation helped YMCA Glenrothes provide homes for eight people. The tenants were homeless or at risk of homelessness, either living in temporary accommodation or being at risk of eviction. The tenants helped design their homes and had the opportunity to improve their education and stabilise their lives. YMCA Glenrothes promotes a holistic approach to living independently and signposts tenants to other agencies for help to overcome more complex problems.

The Nationwide Foundation’s grant was used for some of the renovation and salary costs.
