A warm welcome to YMCA Derbyshire
We welcome you to YMCA Derbyshire. We have been at the heart of the community in Derbyshire since 1847. While the scope of our work has changed considerably over the years, our vision for holistic development in body, mind and spirit and our mission to break down barriers to achievement and help local people to fulfill their full potential have remained our constant purpose.
What we are all about
Today YMCA Derbyshire is an independent Christian charity committed to helping people at times of need, regardless of their gender, race, ability or faith. We provide accommodation at our Campus and in the community. Our supported housing for people facing homelessness and life crises, is highly regarded and often praised. Other core offerings include a host of innovative learning and development programmes from our training & education services, a variety of schemes for children and their families, projects aimed at achieving sustainable community development and schemes aimed at improving individual’s employment skills leading to a paid job. We are affiliated to the national and international YMCA movement, and our values to protect, trust, hope and persevere underpin all of our services across the county.
