About YMCA Bournemouth

We work across five key areas – Housing & Support, Family & Relationships, Youth Work, Training & Education, and Health & Wellbeing – to enable people in our local community to develop their full potential in mind, body and spirit.

“I’m really pleased to be here. Full-time employment is sometimes the only separation between a person living an ordinary life or becoming homeless. When I was 15, I spent a bit of time sleeping rough so it’s something I feel quite passionate about. My resounding memory was how slowly time passed, and the feeling of isolation and of vulnerability.”
