YMCA Open Doors


At the YMCA, we believe that no one should miss out when it comes to living a healthy life. 

The Y aims to build strong people, families and communities by providing health promoting programs. Unfortunately, usually because of financial hardship, not everyone has equal access to the services needed to lead a healthy and active life.

YMCA Open Doors aims to ensure that no one is denied access to the Y because of an inability to pay. With the support of local communities and partners, YMCA raises funds to cover the cost of Y programs and services for people experiencing disadvantage.


Do you, or someone you know, want to participate in a YMCA program or service but can’t afford it? YMCA Open Doors may be able to assist.

YMCA Open Doors can assist by providing subsidised access to YMCA programs and services. As well as improving health in body, mind and spirit, the Y provides opportunities to develop social networks and increase community connection.

For more information about the YMCA Open Doors nomination and referral process, please contact us.


We rely on the generous support of our community partners and people like you, to continue to meet the growing demands for a healthy lifestyle. As YMCA Open Doors is a charity, we are always looking for people to help us make a difference.
All donations over $2 are tax deductable.

For more information on how you can assist, or receive assistance,
contact your local YMCA or visit us at www.victoria.ymca.org.au .
