Our mission is to support our clients to discover their potential and  feel inspired to achieve their aspirations and live their lives to the fullest.

The way we work at YMCA Brighton is characterised by five strong and distinctive values: we are Supportive, Welcoming, Innovative, Collaborative and Aspirational. These values are not only important in our work with clients, but they are values that we aim to instil in the entire work community so that we can ensure that all people within the organisation, and those who are considering joining our organisation are valued, embraced, and included.

It is for this reason that we are happy to be celebrating National Inclusion Week this year, and we invite you to join us in our quest to be #unitedforinclusion.

The aim of the week is to bring together staff from all areas of the organisation and to generate discussions, diversify our thinking and to promote an open and safe culture in which honest, productive, and empathic dialogue can take place.

  • Keep checking this area of the website throughout the week, to see how we are engaging with the themes of the week.
  • Follow us and the hashtags #uniteforinclusion #nationalinclusionweek2021 from the 27th of September until the 3rd of October 2021.

Throughout this week, we will be emailing our staff daily Inclusion bulletins, packed with with information, resources and contributions from staff to promote inclusion, equality, and diversity. We hope you enjoy reading them and that they offer a worthwhile moment of reflection and learning for us all.

Access all bulletins here.
