I am excited that I can be part of ensuring a great service is delivered to people in need of supported living in Doncaster.

Laura Costa has served as a Board Member of YMCA Doncaster since November 2019.

Laura currently works for a large housing association as a Service Manager and has a vast amount of experience in the supported living sector, as well as mental health, sexual health and the criminal justice system.

With having a strong operational background in support services Laura is looking forward to putting her experience to further use by becoming a Board Member at YMCA Doncaster;

“I am excited that I can be part of ensuring a great service is delivered to people in need of supported living in Doncaster. I am particularly interested in supporting innovative ways of securing finances to deliver a vital service and creative ways of engaging with young people to ensure they get the best possible service and successful outcomes.”

Laura was well known to our staff team before she became a Board Member here, having taken part in our annual fundraising event ‘Sleep Easy’ in March 2019. Laura slept in a cardboard shelter for the night, and raised awareness of homelessness as well as funds for YMCA Doncaster. She also took part in a video to promote future ‘Sleep Easy’ events.
