YMCA is a global movement – you’ve probably heard of it. It all started almost 200 years ago with us – Central YMCA. Today, YMCA isn’t just one charity – there are many different YMCAs all around the world doing different things. Central YMCA was the world’s very first one and today we work independently as a leading UK health, education and wellbeing charity. Our values and principles, however, remain the same.
