New YMCA Federation Strategy for England & Wales - YMCA DownsLink Group

New YMCA Federation Strategy for England & Wales

From Chas Walker, CEO

As set out in our own 2020 Vision, we believe that being part of, and playing an active role in the YMCA Federation is an important element of who we are as a local YMCA. I am really encouraged that the YMCA Federation is being proactive in its response to a difficult external funding and social environment.

I believe the strong theme of greater collaboration within the Federation fits well with our own local experience and strategy, and is important for ensuring the YMCA Federation remains an important institution in our society. I encourage you to find ten minutes to read the Strategy and get a greater understanding of what is happening within the YMCA at a national level.

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.
