LO2 my social action production video Task 1 Henley YMCA provides a range of facilities and activities for the community. These include housing for young people, an active living centre with a diverse set of classes, floodlit five-a-side football on a state of the art Soccer Real 60 football pitch, men and ladies senior football with provision for those with learning disabilities, plus youth events. The Henley YMCA was first introduced into the community in 1857. Over the years, its work has been located at a number of sites across the town, providing activities and meeting places for young people as well as sports and leisure activities for the wider community. In response to changing needs, in the 1990s the YMCA decided to develop part of its site to provide affordable housing for young people with a Henley connection.

Access issues;for anyone who is a resident of Henley On Thames will find it easy to get to as it’s near one of thelocal supermarkets, Tesco. It is also in a safe area which makes it more of a small community.

There is a car park at the YMCA forpeople to park their cars if they wish to drive including staff.Existing comparable work;after a lesson of research I found several other videos on YouTube on the YMCA. TheYMCA assistance is based all over the UK, but the Henley YMCA has their own official websites as do other placeswith involvement of the YMCA.
