Today we welcomed our former President Iris Watson to open our 4th move-on house. These houses provide an important last stepping stone for young people who have been in our higher support accommodation, giving them greater independence but with the stability of knowing we’re still on hand for advice. The house, based in the Queen’s Road area of Leicester, will provide accommodation for 5 young people.

Iris was a star of the stage and was an important part of the YMCA Musical Society, based at The Y Theatre, for 40 years. She was The Y’s first female Trustee, joining the board in 1975.
