Thrive Floating Support

YMCA are proud to be a Thrive partner. Thrive was established in 2013 to ensure there is a co-ordinated local response to the needs of vulnerable people in Telford.

The founder members of Thrive – Stay, Bromford Support, Maninplace, Wellington YMCA and The Salvation Army Kip Project came together out of a shared ethos and belief that with the right support, everybody has the potential to “Thrive”.
