Our story

In 1871, a group of friends made it their mission set up a local YMCA branch in Nottinghamshire – all these years later we are still here, supporting communities across Nottinghamshire and Yorkshire. Based on Christian core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility – we are an autonomous regional charity devoted to promoting youth development, healthy living and social responsibility for all. Through our varied range of frontline services across the region, every programme delivered by YMCA strives to improve the mind, body and spirit of our community.

Our YMCA is part of the YMCA Robin Hood Group.
We operate with three core locations and identities:

YMCA Greater Nottingham
YMCA York and East Riding
YMCA Newark and Sherwood

Whilst each YMCA branch is autonomous, we are proud to be part of a charity movement which supports young people both on a national and international level. You can learn about our relationship with the wider (inter)national YMCA movement by visiting the ‘Our Heritage’ page.
