About Us

Established in 1857 YMCA Bradford is an independent charity linked to the YMCA movement in England and Wales by affiliation. Our primary purpose is to provide services, support and activities for young people across the Bradford district, with a particular focus on those in greatest need.

Bradford YMCA offers a range of provision from short courses up to full time programs, and support services designed to meet the needs of children, young people and families in need of extra support. We particularly specialize in working with challenging children and young people, including young offenders (those at risk) and children or young people who are very disengaged. Wherever possible we work holistically with whole families and in partnership with other involved agencies.
