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 hasn’t. Our holistic development in body, mind and spirit and our mission to break down barriers to achievement and help local people to fulfill their potential has remained our constant purpose.

Meet Nathan

Meet Sophie

Due to her poly-cystic kidney disorder, growing up was quite difficult for Sophie.

Meet Michael

Before coming to the YMCA, Michael had a pretty tough life due to difficult living arrangements with different family members and foster carers.
