Promise to Care Pledge

We’re delighted to be added as a signatory to the “Promise to Care” pledge by Leicestershire Cares. As an organisation, we support over 100 young people aged 16 – 25 with accommodation, skills, arts, health, advice and care. Our Y Heritage team also supported and funded the care experienced book “Taking Hold of Our Heritage” in partnership with Leicestershire Cares. You can read more on that project here.
Did you know… we are now in the second week of #FosterCareFortnight? It’s very timely to share this news and celebrate the relationship as organisations who both understand and address the complexities of identity for care experienced young people.

We’re a Not For Profit Organisation Finalist

We can now reveal that The Y is a Not-For-Profit-Organisation finalist in the Leicestershire Live Business Awards! We are so proud to have been selected by BHIB Insurance Brokers as a charity that not only supports some of the most disadvantaged young people in our community but also plays an important role in the cityโ€™s culture and heritage. Our amazing staff have kept going with such strong resolve over the last year and this nomination is a testament to their hard work!
