Welcome to YMCA Northumberland

 

Our work is led by the needs of young people and carried out by a small team of staff and volunteers. We provide grassroots youth programmes that support and empower young people to help them reach their true potential. We’ve been working in Northumberland for over 130 years, always adapting and responding to young people and their changing needs.

It’s a difficult time to be young right now, and we’re finding more and more people in need of our support. Please consider helping us in whatever way you can. Check out our Get Involved section for information about our fundraising efforts, our need for donations and the opportunities available for volunteers who are able to give a little of their time to support our work.

Support & Guidance

At the heart of all our provision is the non-judgemental, listening ear of our experienced youth team. Through this we are able to support young people dealing with a range of personal issues, and liaise with partner organisations to provide a holistic, multi-agency response.
