About the YMCA
YMCA Burton and District is an independent Christian charity helping people in crisis regardless of faith, gender, race or ability.
The charity believes that everyone deserves a place to call home and it provides 71 rooms across three sites for people who are homeless. They also provide practical and emotional support to equip people with the skills and confidence they need to build a brighter future where they can belong, contribute and thrive in our community.
A YMCA food bank, based at the Reconnect Centre on James Street in Burton, issues emergency supplies all-year round to people in crisis and four YMCA shops provide affordable furniture for families across Staffordshire and Derbyshire.
For the past two years the YMCA has been a lead partner in providing a winter shelter for rough sleepers from December 1 through to April 1.
Burton Swans Timeline
The Swan Seekers’ trail will go live in July 2019 and for 10 weeks the completed swans will be on show around the streets, open spaces and public areas of Burton.
We are looking for businesses, community groups or individuals to sponsor one of our 25 scintillating swans.
If you are an established or emerging artist, we’d love to receive your ideas for our swan sculptures.
