Every year, we put together an annual report that recaps our performance in the previous financial year. The report showcases stories from around YMCA Victoria (the Y) while highlighting the impact we’ve had in our communities. The report also includes a financial summary and lists our partners, grants and contributors.

2021-2022: A year in review

What a difference a year makes! While many of our programs were shut during the first half of 2021, the second half of the year has been all about coming back stronger. It hasn’t been an easy reopening, but we’re proud of the impact we’ve made this year.

The Y Victoria Annual Report 2021-2022

Over 2021-2022, we’ve seen great successes across all of our programs, facilities and services.

Our Virtual Y platform and outdoor events helped people of all ages to stay active and connected until our recreation centres reopened at the end of 2021. Meanwhile, our Early Learning Centres operated throughout the COVID-19 lockdowns and were an important point of community connection. When restrictions lifted, our Outside School Hours Care services helped children to reconnect and make new friends.

And that’s not all. Throughout the past 12 months, we saw over 9,000 participants in our Action Sports programs, 52,824 campers at our Y Discovery Camps and more than 213,000 participations across our Youth Services. Over at Kingswim, participation in our swimming lessons has now returned to pre-Covid levels.

We’ve continued to make an impact through our Bridge Project and ReBuild programs too, by supporting young people involved in the criminal justice system. 2021 even saw the launch of the fourth season of the Time to ReBuild podcast. When it comes to fundraising, we’ve adapted from challenges and progressed our positioning as a not-for-profit. 

Read the report below to find out more about the challenges we faced and the impact we’ve made.

Thank you

Thank you for reading this year’s annual report. We hope that you’ve gained an insight into how the Y supports all Victorians. While reopening following the COVID-19 lockdowns posed its challenges, the Y has and will continue to provide spaces where people from all walks of life can find a sense of belonging and connection.
