YMCA Norfolk communities team opens new office 

YMCA Norfolk has thrown open the doors of its new Communities Team office on Waldegrave Road in Bowthorpe for an open day.

The Communities Team is made up of the Families Team, Youth & Community Team, SOS project workers and On Track project workers. The open day, on February 13, was the first time that the whole team had met together.

Following a shared breakfast and team building, the doors of the offices were thrown open to the local community and professionals from Sure Start, Bowthorpe Church, and the Matthew Project as well as YMCA trustees, patrons and staff.

Communities Team Manager, Louise Hinchley, said: “We were really pleased with how much the local community in Bowthorpe supported the YMCA Norfolk Communities team open day. We have only just moved in, and we are really keen to build relationships with the local church and community.

"We are hoping to bring new opportunities for lots of young people and families both in the area and county-wide as we grow and develop our new team, and new office space.”

The offices at 7/8 Waldegrave Road, Norwich NR5 9AW, also has a training room that will be used to deliver Mental Health First Aid as well as other in-house training.
