For Families

The YMCA plays an important part in the support and development of family life across southern England with a growing list of  services for the community in Southampton,  Basingstoke, Gosport, Portsmouth, Dorset, Winchester and the Isle of Wight.

Our welcoming settings and caring environments put young people and their families first and our mission is to ‘champion and add value to young lives by providing experiences that challenge, enable and develop the individual.’

Our values: listening, caring, welcoming, exciting, inspiring, active

Our unique approach brings our mission and values to life, supporting each child to develop individually and encouraging children and their families to achieve positive outcomes – the YMCA Way.

For more information on each service for families, please visit the relevant geographical location.

Through membership of the YMCA Community, you will have the chance to feel a greater sense of ownership and belonging, as well as enjoying exclusive member events, discounts and early booking discounts.  For more information visit our Membership page.
