Get ready for the relaunch of YMCA OnSide!

We are pleased to confirm that our Nottinghamshire YMCA Onside programme will be officially relaunching – with some exciting new additions!

YMCA OnSide is a community-centric programme featuring sports, skills, competitions and training opportunities for young people with disabilities and their families. In line with new government safety restrictions, our sessions will be reopening in the new year and – in addition to delivering our usual offerings – we will be running something completely new in 2021!

New offerings

One Monday a month, we will be hosting an exciting social activity for you and your family! Activities will include everything from bowling or ice skating to family group meals, and we will be working with you to bring your own ideas to life.

We understand that sometimes the children have respite, and this may fall on a Monday. Where this occurs, we are happy for the respite staff, if available, to bring the children to our social activities.

We will be running YMCA Onside in 2021:

Mondays – monthly family socials

Tuesdays – football sessions at YMCA Youth and Community Centre (6pm – 7.15pm)



For us to be able to run these new sessions, we will be asking members to pay a small monthly membership fee.

The membership fee will be as follows:

  • 2 adults & 1 child = £15.00
  • 2 adults & 2 children = £20.00
  • 2 adults & 3 children = £25.00

We will be following the latest government advice and guidance at all times to ensure your safety, and we will keep you updated as things progress along with any changes that may occur.

If there is anything you wish to discuss, please do not hesitate to contact us at You can also contact programme manager Nico Devivo directly on 07423695151.

We cannot wait to welcome you and your children back to our sessions!
