YMCA DownsLink Group is a charity that works to prevent youth homelessness across Sussex and Surrey. Every night, we provide accommodation to more than 750 young people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.

Through our youth advice centres, community and school counselling services, family mediation and other youth focussed services, we also provide additional support to 10,000 children, young people and families each year.

Our main centres include: Brighton & Hove, Guildford, Horsham, Crawley, Eastbourne, Hastings and Worthing.
