Who we are

Nationally

YMCA is the largest and the oldest charity working with young people around the world. In England alone there are 114 YMCAs, each a separate charity, but all part of the national YMCA Federation. Each organisation represents a thriving and active community; a community that is transforming lives.

At YMCA we are proud of our Christian heritage and ethos. We are an inclusive Christian movement transforming communities, and providing a wide array of community-based activities and services to help meet local needs wherever we are based.

Locally

Despite being a member of the YMCA Federation for England and Wales, YMCA Northumberland is an independent, local charity, based in the centre of Ashington. While the current iteration of the organisation was established in 1998, our Ashington site has been home to YMCA in some form for around 130 years and is known to multiple generations of residents.

Our remit is to work with children and young people from across Northumberland, creating an environment in which they can belong, contribute and thrive. Much of our current work is aimed at young people aged 12 to 18 years, living in Ashington and the surrounding villages.
