What we do

At Southend YMCA we're proud to focus on the following key areas of work

Our Goal, Vision & Commitment

Southend YMCA is an outstanding registered charity and housing provider based in Southend On Sea and working throughout Essex.


We work with children, young people, families and the wider community providing high-quality education, outstanding accommodation and positive activities and projects.


These aid personal, social, cultural and moral development as well as improved health and wellbeing to the people of Southend and surrounding areas.

Volunteer, Participate or Donate

You can support Southend YMCA in several ways and be the reason why a young person has access to help, accommodation and hope for the future.

Individuals, groups or businesses of any size can create a small fundraiser or take part in a sponsored event to raise funds for our work and hundreds of young people's lives.
