YMCA North Tyneside is a charity that has been dedicated to strengthening people in our local community since 1879.
YMCA 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.
what we do
YMCA is a local charity dedicated to helping transform the lives of vulnerable young people throughout North Tyneside. We do this by providing a number of services for the public which helps us sustain our charitable outcomes. We currently house 36 young people in our supported accommodation and provide ongoing education and training to help them learn new skills and thrive as individuals.
TRAINING & EDUCATION
YOUTH, PLAY & COMMUNITY
Informal opportunities to support young people’s learning and development lies at the heart of YMCA’s approach to youth work, enabling young people to try new experiences.
As well as providing a safe and caring environment for children to learn YMCA Day Nursery strive to support families providing help and guidance for children and their guardians.
YMCA North Tyneside provides a safe environment where young people learn to thrive as individuals and contribute to their local community through various training programmes.
YMCA has a rich heritage and history of prominent individuals and significant events which have made a lasting contribution to society. For the first time, unseen artefacts and untold stories from the last 175 years, will come together as part of one collection to bring to life the impact YMCA has had on young people’s lives. People in the North East will be able to see the exhibition in North Shields.
As cases of mental health difficulties among young people continue to rise, it is more important than ever to take time out to prioritise mental wellbeing. YMCA North Tyneside is calling on everyone in the North East to do just that by taking a WHOLE HOUR for themselves on World Mental Health Day (10 October).
