Welcome to Kingston
& Wimbledon YMCA
Welcome to the Web Site of Kingston & Wimbledon YMCA. We are a large and diverse community based organisation, working in South West London and Surrey, with a particular focus on young people. Based at three main centres and operating from fourteen separate locations, we provide a range of services to our local communities, including supported housing; children's work; sports, health, exercise and fitness; youth work; residential care homes; catering services and conference facilities; short stay hostel accommodation and community programmes.
Kingston & Wimbledon YMCA has been serving the community for almost 130 years and has been constantly evolving. In 2004 the separate Kingston & Wimbledon and District YMCAs merged to form the new Association - the largest local YMCA in Europe!
We are an independent charitable organisation that is part of the world wide YMCA Movement, governed by a volunteer board of management with the following vision:-
"Kingston & Wimbledon YMCA is committed to putting Christian principles into action through programmes that building a healthy body, mind and spirit for all.
We are passionate in our desire to respond to the needs of the local community and in growing people"
