YMCA DLG Empty Homes on BBC South Today

YMCA DownsLink Group’s Empty Homes project was featured on BBC’s South Today news on Thursday 8th January. With over 12,000 properties in the south standing empty and an ever rising demand for affordable housing the programme highlighted the work we do to bring unused buildings back into use.

YMCA DLG Empty Homes is a government funded scheme trough which we rent unused properties from their owners, refurbish them to a good standard and turn them into housing for low income families and young people.




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.
