As a registered charity, YMCA Birmingham is reliant on your personal donations, fundraising and sponsorship to provide services and facilities for young people and the community.

You can help to inspire young people by donating through our Virgin Money Giving account. Click an option below to donate.

Make a single donation

Right now countless young people are frantically searching for somewhere safe to sleep tonight. Make a one-off donation and answer to a young person calling for help, securing them a warm bed for the night and a hot meal at YMCA.

How your donation can help:

£15 could provide an hour of counselling for a traumatised young person


£25 could provide one night's emergency accommodation


£40 could pay for a half day workshop to help a young person back into work


£100 could pay to hear our emergency accommodation during the winter


£500 could provide a residential training course to build the confidence and skills of a young person




Make a regular gift

With a regular gift to YMCA you will always be there for young people in need. No matter how much you can donate, you will provide a safe place to stay, support, advice and training to young people every day of the year, all across Birmingham.



Northfield Hostel

The transformation of our Erdington accommodation, The Orchard, has had an incredible effect on the lives and aspirations of those housed there. It is now our mission to offer the same standard of living across our accommodation options.

We are currently in the process of transforming our Northfield hostel into a modern, comfortable space which helps to raise the aspirations of the young people who come to stay with us.

Having completed the first two phases of the project, refurbishing the ground floor and creating a health and training suite, we are now moving on to the next phase, refurbishing the remaining rooms within the hostel.

Here’s how we want the hostel to look when it is complete! 

Sponsor a room

If you or your organisation would like to contribute to creating a safe space for vulnerable young people in Northfield, please consider sponsoring a room.

Your sponsorship will be recognised, and the area / room within the development will be named after your company.
