YMCA Derbyshire is an independent Christian charity that seeks to enable people who are homeless, socially excluded or disadvantaged, to achieve their potential and play a full part in society, regardless of their gender, race, ability, faith, past experiences or present circumstances.

We have been at the heart of Derbyshire's community since 1847. Our key services include;

Housing and Support for people who find themselves temporarily without a place to live. We have 193 bed spaces - 87 on site at our main Campus in which 34 units make up our Foyer accommodation supporting young people aged 16-25.We then have a further 106 units across our city and county including a mixture of self-contained and shared flats/houses.

Our support services include a whole host of health and wellbeing activities to get our residents mentally and physically active along with dedicated volunteering and work-based learning programmes.

Through our YMCA Key College we provide a whole host of accredited training courses for young people aged 16-19 and up to 24 for those with an Education Health Care Plan. Predominately supporting young people where mainstream education has not been suitable. We support over 150 students each year.

Our charities vision is enabling young people and communities to thrive: so they can fulfil their dreams; have a safe space to learn and grow; feel equipped to belong, contribute and prosper; and feel supported to be active in body, mind and spirit. Together we create places where people flourish.

Christmas is an especially difficult time for young people living with us as they are often estranged from their families.

This year, please help us to show these young people that they are thought of, worthy and celebrate as individuals. It is our aim to provide them with the delicious Christmas meal, a gift and activities to enjoy that they deserve.

Not only that, but we are raising funds to improve the living area for our young people. This will include providing them with technology for education, work and entertainment purposes, new sofas and board games to enjoy the company of their friends and a beanbag area to give them a space to relax and chill out.

We are so thankful for all the support we receive. We want to continue changing and enhancing lives. We thank you in advance for any support you can offer YMCA Derbyshire.
