YMCA Fairthorne Group is a registered charity: we're proud to be part of the longest-running youth charity in the world. We inspire young people
The YMCA is all about welcoming, listening, caring and inspiring. We help young people and families to belong, contribute and thrive. In a busy world, we always make time for the individuals who come to us.
We create exciting and active places and moments where life skills, confidence and friendships grow. Your first morning, day or night away from home ? or the first home of your own ? are experiences you?ll never forget. Our whole team works to make them amazing.
Our special way of working is underpinned by the Search Institute?s 40 Developmental Assets. This research explores the influences and actions that affect and support children?s development both within and outside the family. YMCA Fairthorne Group is very excited by this research; it helps us measure how we add real value to the lives of the young people we work with. The 40 Developmental Assets focus on family as well as individuals and supports our understanding of the importance of shared family experiences. We?re working hard to engage whole families, in order to support children and young people.
