“I’ve always had a bad experience with education and never really enjoyed learning. Whether that was because of my anxiety or simply not getting along with the teacher. Joining YMCA has changed that, I love my tutor and I look forward to every session with her. I had a lot of support and reassurance throughout.”

"I came to YMCA because I was looking for a laid-back place with a person-centred approach. This is the first place I’ve felt supported and actually understood what I’m supposed to be doing. I now have a career path and am looking to start my Level 3 qualification."
