Support & Advice


As a charity rooted deeply within the communities of Derby & Derbyshire we pride ourselves in providing the best support and advice to those who seek us out or are referred to us. YMCA Derbyshire aims to create an environment in which our service users, volunteers and members of staff support each other to deliver life changing opportunities for our service users, fulfilling opportunities for our volunteers and mentors.

Supporting people through a life challenge, and to some service users, a life crisis, is also very much key to what we do at the YMCA Derbyshire. What we seek to do is more than just provide support in finding people a home. We work to gain their trust, building confidence and skills through learning and development of those skills with our training and education service so that they can enter employment and find their way in the world and contribute to society.
