Info for Residents - Handbook, Charter, Rent, Magazines

Resident's Handbook
Like any community Ryder House has to have clear house rules and
guidance for the good of all residents and staff. 
These are made clear at housing interview and when a new resident moves in. 
They are set out in your tenancy / licence agreement;
the house rules and the Resident's Handbook.  
Residents help to regularly update and improve their handbook.
For a guide to life as a Ryder House Resident you can download a recent
version of the Ryder House Resident's Handbook HERE

Note that Residents can also refer to the YMCA England Housing Division documents YMCA England Resident's Handbook and the YMCA England Resident's Charter.  


Letter to Resident's - Rent & Service Charges

Like any other housing provider we write to residents to set out the rent and service charges and how they are calculated to ensure transparency and accountability - and to demonstrate that living at the YMCA is exceptionally good value for money.
