Ypeople has merged with YWCA Scotland

The Young Women’s Movement, a feminist organisation which is part of a global movement of young women leading change. The new partnership will be known as the Ypeople Group, with the aim of increasing each organisation’s impact across Scotland.
Joe Connolly, Chief Executive Officer of Ypeople, said: “We have been working informally with the YWCA Scotland team for a number of years on a variety of projects. In that time, it has become apparent that there are obvious opportunities for both organisations to benefit those we support by collaborating on a more formal basis.
“Ypeople and YWCA Scotland already have much in common. The two groups have rich histories dating back more than 100 years but, at the same time, take a modern and outward-looking approach to supporting and giving a voice to vulnerable and marginalised people across Scotland.”
“YWCA Scotland’s team of talented and forward-thinking young women, led by its new Director Patrycja Kupiec, will be an enormous asset to the newly expanded group as we pool our resources to assist people in Scotland who most need our help.”
Patrycja Kupiec, who took over her new role at the end of 2017, commented:
“YWCA Scotland – the Young Women’s Movement is an organisation steeped in history, and while we are proud of our heritage, our main strength is being able to constantly re-invent ourselves and innovate to best represent the interests of young women in Scotland.”
“We want to see young women and girls thrive on a local and global scale, and their voices heard, celebrated, and respected. The partnership with Ypeople will strengthen our position as one of the Scotland’s leading feminist organisations and we are very excited for this next step in our history.”
