Construction on YMCA Lincolnshire’s Housing Expansion Project commences

Together with YMCA Lincolnshire, we are pleased to announce that construction has officially begun on the proposed housing development at Sheridan House, St Giles, Lincoln. The ground-breaking event marks the commencement of this transformative project, which aims to provide essential move-on accommodation and support for young people in need.

This significant milestone underscores the commitment of both organisations in addressing pressing social needs and making a positive impact on the community. The project, consisting of 16 independent apartments, will expand the housing provision already provided by YMCA Lincolnshire, contributing significantly to their mission of supporting vulnerable and disadvantaged individuals across the region supporting adults experiencing homelessness to reach their potential in mind, body and spiting in the areas of life that matter most to them.

Helen Wright, Director of Housing at YMCA Lincolnshire said “I am delighted that redevelopment work has commenced at Sheridan House and to be working with Stirlin Developments to create much-needed, high-quality accommodation for local young people. These modern apartments will provide a safe space for those who have experienced hardship in their lives.”

Abigail Kirby, Operations Director of Stirlin, commented, “We are proud to be part of this project, knowing it will make a positive difference in the lives of individuals and communities. Social values are embedded at the heart of what we do at Stirlin, and we are committed to delivering outstanding results.”

The collaboration between YMCA Lincolnshire and Stirlin signifies a powerful partnership that combines expertise and compassion to create tangible, lasting change in Lincolnshire. By leveraging YMCA Lincolnshire’s profound understanding of community support and Stirlin’s unmatched construction capabilities, this partnership ensures that the housing expansion project will meet the highest standards of quality.

As work progresses on the site, Stirlin and YMCA Lincolnshire remain dedicated to their shared goal of providing essential housing and support for young people in need. Together, they embody the spirit of community collaboration, working hand in hand to create a brighter future for individuals and families across the region.
