About Us

YMCA Bournemouth is one of the oldest and most established Charities in the area, having served the local community since 1879. As a local Association we are affiliated to a national and international movement serving children, young people and families and we are the largest children and young people’s organisation in the world.

Locally YMCA Bournemouth has an extensive track record of successfully engaging with and providing services to the most vulnerable and hard to reach groups in our community. As a Christian Charity our success reflects our commitment, values and partnership with those we serve.
