YMCA Robin Hood Group

In 1871, a group of friends opened a YMCA for people in Nottinghamshire, and we’ve been here ever since.

YMCA has helped young people across Nottinghamshire for over 150 years, providing a safe, non-judgemental space.

We pride ourselves on supporting communities across Nottinghamshire and Yorkshire. Based on Christian core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.


As well as Newark & Sherwood we operate in two other locations:

YMCA Greater Nottingham
YMCA York and East Riding

Whilst each YMCA branch is autonomous, we are proud to be part of a charity movement which supports young people both on a national and international level. You can learn about our relationship with the wider (inter)national YMCA.

YMCA England & Wales

You can find out more about the wide range of work we do across the community in our Annual Report.

We’re always happy to work with journalists on news stories relating to youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.
