The Orchard is our flagship supported housing scheme for 16-25 year olds in Erdington. It provides accommodation for up to 82 young people in self-contained flats, so it is the ideal scheme for those people who are comfortable living independently. There is also a team of dedicated YMCA Engagement Officers on hand 24/7 to help you develop an action plan and work with young people to achieve their life goals.

As well as the support that we provide, The Orchard has on-site training facilities to enable our clients to undergo training, and a number of social enterprises that can offer clients volunteering, apprenticeship and even paid employment opportunities. There’s an IT suite available for clients to engage in job searches and brush up on their computer skills.

Built to the highest standards and with a cutting edge design, The Orchard provides residents with a fully-furnished flat which gives them a great platform to help them build the life that they want.
