Birmingham YMCA

The YMCA is an inclusive Christian movement transforming communities so that all people, especially the young, can truly belong, contribute and thrive.

Birmingham YMCA is an independent Christian charity affiliated to the national and international YMCA movement, and working with people of all faiths and none. Our aim is to inspire people to strengthen their communities by discovering their potential. We seek to do this by offering affordable accommodation for people who are or have recently been homeless. But more than that we seek to offer them support so that they can quickly move on to living independently.

We also run nurseries, out-of-school clubs, and youth clubs for young people across the city, helping to provide an inspirational presence in the lives of young people.
