Half Time is a place where rough sleepers sit down with experienced advisors by appointment and work out their plan of action.
The team offers practical help in the form of a clothes washing service and access to a shower plus support to get identification sorted.
It is amazing how a shave, a shower and clean clothes can increase people’s self-esteem and give people more motivation to take the next step off the street.

How You Can Help Us!
The Half-Time service provided one-to-one support to over 250 individuals in 2018
The Half-Time project is co-run by the YMCA Chaplaincy and a team of volunteers. Our chaplaincy service exists to offer spiritual support, pastoral care and moral guidance to staff, volunteers, clients and their families.
Danny has battled hard to get himself free of addiction but last year he also battled for others by organising a coffee morning in aid of cancer care.
Mehdi is now a very successful businessman in Bournemouth but it has been a very difficult journey. A stay at YMCA Bournemouth changed his life.
