About Us

Welcome to our website, and to the work of Doncaster YMCA.

We’re an independent charity, bringing together local people and organisations to support young lives in Doncaster.

Our work is led by our Board of Governors and carried out by a small team of staff and volunteers.

We focus on meeting the needs of the town’s most vulnerable young people, and the core of our work is in providing support with finding a home and leading a responsible adult life.  Our main priorities are our Supported Accommodation for 30 young people and our Private Rented Sector service which assists young people to settle in a longer term home.

We’ve been working in Doncaster for over 150 years, always adapting to respond to young people and their changing needs.

It’s a difficult time to be young right now, and we’re finding more and more people in need of our support. Please consider helping us in whatever way you can. The links on this site will take you to information about our fundraising efforts, our need for donations and the opportunities available for volunteers who are able to give a little of their time to support our work.
