YMCA Trinity Group is a local based charity at the heart of the community, working with young people to develop their skills and futures. The YMCA Trinity Group is working towards a project, which is part of the YMCA Shine Youth Programme in Lowestoft, providing sessions for young people, advancing skills in cooking and gardening, and offering one-to-one and group support in local schools. With the use of the charity group’s allotment plots, which are located in central Lowestoft, these idyllic landscapes have provided a vital community space to enable engagement with young people in an outdoor setting.

Last year, the Town Council provided a Covid grant, which was used towards developing the newest allotment plot and enabled the group to continue to engage with young people over the summer holidays.

The group have made it to the semi-finals of the Best Project of the Year Awards, this award recognises a YMCA group that has delivered an innovative and inspiring project in the area of Family Work that has had a tangible and positive impact on young people and/or the wider community. Voting is still open and available at the following.
