YMCA Newcastle was founded in 1849 and has been supporting the city’s young people ever since, we believe that given the right opportunities, resources and support, young people can achieve their full potential. We are committed to helping young people in all areas of their lives, that’s why we work in the areas of Support and Advice, Accommodation, Health and Wellbeing, Family Work and Training and Education.
