Our Work

YMCA Bournemouth is a registered charity providing local services and projects that give children, young people and vulnerable individuals hope for a better future and the means to achieve it.

YMCA Bournemouth gave me a sense of family, talked to me, advised me, arranged courses and gave me the space to unravel what happened to me. It was the best opportunity I ever had. YMCA Bournemouth can change your life: they changed mine.
