There are lots of ways you can donate to YMCAD; you can give money, shop online, leave a gift in your will, or we are always in need of items to help provide for our beneficiaries and charity shop.

Ryan's Story

Community Meal

On the last Friday of each month, we host a Community Meal. The event offers the opportunity for individuals, families, community groups and businesses to come together, get to know one another and eat great food.

YMCA believes in fairness and opportunity. There are essential building blocks for a full and rewarding life: a safe home; acceptance; guidance; friendship; physical and mental health; academic support; employment skills; and access to real opportunities.

Many young people have never known these things; other people have lost one or more as they grew up, but we all need them. All of us.

At YMCA Derbyshire, we provide these critical foundations for a fresh, strong start for young people and a better quality of life in the community.
