A Suffolk project from the YMCA Trinity group has won an award at the annual YMCA Youth Matters awards.

The Easy Peasy Pods scheme supports young parents living in YMCA accommodation, allowing them and their children to meet, socialise and play games with others.

The six-week block of sessions focus on a different children’s book, with activities inspired by the subject of the story.

In London this month, the scheme won best accommodation project at the YMCA Youth Matters awards in London.

Helen Moore, accommodation team leader and manager of the Easy Peasy Pods project said: “We’re delighted with the progress Easy Peasy Pods has made.
