For 90 years YHA has helped all, especially young people of limited means, to explore the beauty and breadth of England and Wales.
We’ve been here for generations, looking after unique places and creating experiences that inspire lifelong love of travel, the outdoors, heritage and nature. Adventures that turn lives around.
Help us keep going for generations to come.
Why make a monthly donation?
Travel and adventure are proven to improve mental and physical health and wellbeing. That’s just under normal circumstances. Now, more than ever, people need YHA and the access we provide to green space, affordable breaks, and opportunities that build confidence, resilience and skills for life.
In 2020, YHA suffered a significant drop in income. We have done everything we can to reduce the impact, but we need support to get us through.
YHA needs you.
How your support helps
We exist to ensure everyone can access the very real benefits of travel and adventure. Your support helps us reach those who would otherwise miss out on these vital opportunities.
We care for 150+ unique, often historic, buildings. Our hostels offer doorstep access to England and Wales’ most loved landscapes and landmarks. Your support helps us sustain and preserve them.
Through education residentials, community outreach, volunteering opportunities and work readiness schemes, we build skills for life. Your support helps us positively impact more lives.
