Who we are and what we do
YMCA was founded in England in 1844 and is now the largest and oldest youth charity in the world. Operating in 119 countries, each country is governed by a national council.
YMCA England & Wales is the national council for 116 YMCAs across England and Wales. Each YMCA is an independent charity that affiliates to YMCA England & Wales.
While YMCAs work and respond locally to support young people, YMCA England & Wales supports each local charity to deliver one or all five of our work areas: Accommodation, Family Work, Health and Wellbeing; Training and Education and Support and Advice.
We support local YMCAs by promoting high standards of working and sharing best practice. We drive the national brand strategy, campaigns, and policy and research, advising and supporting YMCAs to engage communities, stakeholders and supporters locally.
We give YMCAs a national voice by speaking with government, key policy makers and national media, and we represent them by advocating the needs of young people in England and Wales.
Our Fundraising department and Retail operation, which spans across the country, provide us with the funds to help young people reach their full potential.
