Help the YMCA support your local community



The YMCA Group based in Cardiff and Newport, provide a mix of supported accommodation; opportunities to take part in a range of activities within a community setting, and help for those furthest from the labour market into work through volunteering and training.

By supporting this event, your participation and fundraising efforts can help us to help vulnerable people of all ages to improve their wellbeing, confidence, skills and help those on a small income or reliant on benefits to improve their lives.

Our youth and community teams provide 1 to 1 support; help over 250 young carers and their families, and provide sexual health outreach programmes and childcare. We also deliver youth clubs and well equipped community rooms across Cardiff and Newport.

Your support will help someone at breaking point get their life back on track.
