This General Election we are inviting candidates and political parties to commit to supporting our YMCA manifesto - “Living their best lives” - and to delivering a new era for young people with policies that will support them and the communities in which they live, to truly be able to live their best lives.

YMCA England & Wales has consulted with young people and local YMCAs to create a manifesto which sets out the fundamental basics of what all young people deserve; having a roof over their head, to feeling physically and emotionally safe, to having a decent job, good health, and the opportunity to be an integral part of their local community.  Now more than ever, we need a Government who will deliver for our country’s young people so they can be living their best lives.

Please support our campaign by sharing the manifesto with your contacts.
