What we do

About YMCA Teesdale

YMCA Teesdale is a small Charity covering the Teesdale area in County Durham. The organisation is structured into 3 sections:

Youth and community Work –

This includes youth work, intergenerational work, Young Parents project, Sports sessions, community support, and schools work including Forest Schools. We create and build upon relationships with both young people and local organisations supporting them through the key transition period.

Community cafés –

We have 2 community cafes one in Evenwood and the other in Cockfield. Both projects service the community in much more ways than being a simple café. They are places of information, places to meet and a place that offers social activities, information and training. Our cafés have become the heart of the community.

Training and education –

We run in-house education sessions. These are tailored to the individual or for small groups.
