The YMCA is the largest and oldest youth charity in the world. We believe that all young people deserve to have a safe place to live and the opportunity to reach their full potential. The YMCA's vision is of an inclusive Christian Movement, transforming communities so that all young people truly belong, contribute and thrive. Yes, we're faith-based, but everyone is welcome at the YMCA.
Across 135 YMCAs in England, we offer accommodation and support that enables a young person to live independently, grow, achieve and contribute to their community. Each YMCA is an independent organisation which provides services tailored to the needs of their local community. YMCA England supports and represents the 135 YMCAs in England, as well as being a voice for YMCAs and young people on the national stage.
By workng with YMCAs that understand local issues, the YMCA in England meets the real needs of young people, supporting them in a way which is nationally significant and locally relevant.
