Youth Hostel Association 18/19 Impact Review
Today YHA is a leading charity. We are a successful social enterprise, and one of the UK’s largest membership organisations. We have a history to be proud of, a trusted brand and a loyal supporter base. We are a youth organisation, but we serve all ages – providing adventures, opportunities and employment. We own and maintain properties of local significance.
While we are not primarily an environmental organisation, we are well placed to contribute to the protection of the natural world. We are not a mental health organisation, but residentials, physical activity, being outdoors and access to culture all lead to increased wellbeing. We are not a hotel chain, but we must maintain the highest standards for overnight stays, food and customer service. We are big, we are diverse and we are stable.
