Stuart Miller Solicitors Visits YMCA
'YMCA enables people to develop their full potential in mind, body and spirit. Inspired by, and faithful to our Christian values, we create supportive, inclusive and energising communities where young people can truly belong, contribute and thrive. '
The YMCA North London is the largest hostel in the London Borough of Haringey where Stuart Miller Solicitors also sits. Last year the association provided over 300 young people with accommodation. Although a small housing association they house 154 young people aged 16-35 with pressing housing needs in a large hostel and, in addition, have 15 room spaces in houses designed as first stage ‘move-on’ points. They focus on helping disadvantaged young people, aged 16-35, who are homeless or in need of housing, to achieve the transition from dependence to independence, similar to Unique Support where we visited earlier this year.
The YMCA North London offers integrated access to affordable accommodation, training, personal development, guidance and job searching facilities. This is where we were able to offer our legal services as assistance. We sent a pair of representatives to YMCA North London with the goal of answering legal questions with regards to criminal law, we found our time here productive.. One of our goals was to build relationships with the people we spoke to. We were able to ensure each person left knowing what their next steps should be. Stuart Miller Solicitors are proud of our solicitors Sarah King and Kate Blackmore for representing us so well.
We look forward to more engagement with YMCA North London and their residents.
