YMCA Research – Trapped in the Cost of Living Crisis

New research released by YMCA paints a stark picture of the challenges imposed by the ongoing cost of living crisis, particularly affecting young individuals in supported housing.
Food insecurity, inability to afford basic necessities, and restricted access to transportation for school or work, are driving a significant decline in mental health and general wellbeing.
The report also highlights challenges faced by local YMCA organisations, which have seen a surge in demand for housing amid the ongoing housing crisis while bills have skyrocketed and donations have decreased, further stretching already thin resources.
