About YMCA Nottinghamshire
About Nottinghamshire YMCA
In 1871 a group of friends made it their mission set up a YMCA branch in Nottinghamshire and all these years later we are still here, still supporting the community and still growing!
We belong to a worldwide Christian Ecumenical movement that genuinely welcomes those of other faiths and none. We seek to share the Christian ideal of building a human community of justice where every one deserves the chance to fulfil their God-given potential.
Our passions are youth development, healthy living and social responsibility which are encompassed by all of our many programmes.
Our Core Values are Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility and these are the threads which run through everything we do.
Each YMCA branch is autonomous, but we are proud to be part of the movement nationally and internationally. Did you know the YMCA has 11,200 branches in 119 countries and reaches 58 million people every year.
