As part of the world’s largest youth organisation we aim to advance the education, health and wellbeing of our communities by creating improved access to life-changing opportunities. We do everything in our power to support each child and family in their journey, making it as fun and engaging as possible.
We run a range of programmes for 4–14 year olds, including an action-packed Holiday Playschemes, After School Sports and Swim School. Our programme supports children to develop physical skills, whilst promoting inclusivity, positive health and wellbeing.
As part of our Youth Membership programme, young people aged from 12 to 17 are given the opportunity to develop their independence and actively seek healthier lifestyles. We also accept Young Volunteers from the age of 15, where they can begin building an understanding of the professional environment whilst absorbing knowledge that will help them in their journey to adulthood.
The whole family can find something to do at YMCA Club, whether that’s the family swim or other events that are delivered throughout the year.
The Charity takes its responsibilities for safeguarding extremely seriously and believes that it is never acceptable for a child, young person, vulnerable adult, or any member of society to experience abuse of any kind.
