Meet Nathan

Having spent two years living a reclusive life, Nathan didn’t communicate with anyone – he’d given up and had no motivation. Find out how YMCA Derbyshire provided him with friends for life and dramatically increased his confidence.

YMCA Y-Kidz Winter HAF

winter HAF

We prepared 112 food and activity packs. The packs supported 72 children under Y-Kidz HAF and a further 40 children under Derby County Community Trust HAF.
Each box contained fresh ingredients accompanied by recipe cards. An additional 48 family sized ingredients bags were supplied so that children and parent/carers could cook a chilli together.

Meet Michael

Michael had a tough life due to difficult living arrangements with family members and foster carers. After an argument with his father, Michael found himself in the care of YMCA Derbyshire. Find out how we have helped him to have a better outlook on life.

Meet Sophie

Due to polycystic kidney disorder, growing up was already difficult for Sophie. Then, when she was 13, she was diagnosed with a global learning disability, meaning life got even more complicated for her. Find out how we have helped Sophie with her education.

Meet Mikey

Mikey joined YMCA Derbyshire when he was 16 because of issues at home; he found he was doing nothing, smoking drugs, just passing the day. Find out how we have provided him with the motivation to find a job and turn his life around for the better.
