Yvonne House

Yvonne House is a 24-hour therapeutic residential unit for 16-18-year-old vulnerable females. Purpose built and designed specifically with young women in mind, it has 9 high quality en suite studios, a specialist therapeutic service and a multi-function room that hosts a wide range of workshops and activities from boxing, to creative writing, to graffiti art, to movie nights.

We are an aspirational project that believes in the importance of the highest quality, personalised support for care leavers during their difficult transition to independence; we want these young women to feel confident, equipped and hopeful about the future.  Yvonne House aims to be much more than a safe and comfortable home. We want to be a place young people will remember as somewhere where they were supported to broaden their horizons and think bigger.
