HOW YOU CAN HELP
Become a ‘Friend of Cardiff YMCA’
By supporting our work you can help us continue to make a positive difference to the lives of many homeless people. Helping us to continue to provide safe accommodation whilst helping us to help people develop the skills and confidence they need to enable them to reach their full potential.
Take part in the SleepEasy Challenge. This is an annual national YMCA fundraising event where people sleep rough so others don’t have to. We are looking for participants, fundraisers, sponsorship and donations.
For the past three years, we have been operating PreFab Clothing, providing volunteering opportunities in our Recycling unit in Tremorfa, and at our shop at 7, Wellfield Road, Roath, Cardiff. If you would like an opportunity to gain experience in retail and recycling and to work in a great work environment please email us.
CaringGifts. Help the homeless while you solve your ‘what-to-buy’ present problems. Instead of receiving the usual socks, and jumpers, imagine your loved one’s delight when they open up an original YMCA CaringGift such as sponsoring a night at a YMCA hostel for a homeless person.
When a person becomes homeless they are often lonely, isolated and vulnerable. Without support they can easily become trapped in a life of poverty, exclusion, or worse. By becoming a Room Sponsor you can help us to help them turn their life around.
Become a member of YMCA Cardiff
We are a membership led organisation. If you are a group, society, sports club or any other type of group and wish to contribute or support our work, one such option is to become a member of the YMCA.
Membership entitles your group to discounted use of YMCA facilities as well as access to a worldwide movement that supports young people and disadvantaged groups.
