Our mission and ethos

At YMCA Bournemouth our heart is to help and support people of all ages, origins and faiths, especially those who are young and who are needy or vulnerable in some way. Our desire is to see lives changed in line with our mission statement:

“YMCA Bournemouth enables people to develop their full potential in mind, body and spirit. Inspired by, and faithful to, our Christian Values, we create supportive, inclusive and energising communities where young people can truly belong, contribute and thrive.”

This is achieved through our five core services (click for more information):
