The DownsLink Challenge is back by popular demand! Take on the 17.5-mile walk along the Downs Link Pathway (which is what we’re named after!) from Horsham to Shoreham-by-Sea and help us put young people experiencing homelessness back on the path to independence.

What we do:

We prevent youth homelessness through accommodation, support and advice. Every night we provide a safe home to over 750 young people in your community.

Each and every one has faced serious challenges in their lives. No young person chooses to be homeless.

Why take part in the DownsLink Challenge?

Do it alone or in a group, we guarantee you’ll have a great day all in aid of ending youth homelessness by helping us ensure all young people living with us or being supported by us move on positively and independently, forever.

After another challenging year for so many, this is a great opportunity to get your family, friends or colleagues together and boost your mental health and wellbeing out in stunning countryside.

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.
