YMCA Canberra has created a dedicated updates website to keep all families, staff and community members up to date on the opening and closure status of YMCA Canberra services due to the current air quality issues created by the NSW bushfires impacting on the ACT.


Please use the subscribe function at the top of the page to join our updates list. This status service will be updated daily whilst air quality issues remain.

All current emergency contacts for families and community members enrolled in programs have been added to our updates list in accordance with our contact and privacy policy.  You can unsubscribe from updates at any time.

To speak to one of our team members regarding your personal circumstance please call (02) 62424040 or email cs.canberra@ymca.org.au during standard business hours.


YMCA Canberra has been closely monitoring air quality in Canberra via the ACT Health Directorate’s Public Health Alerts and AirRater app as recommended by the Directorate. Recommendations for reducing smoke at indoor locations have been implemented to reduce the impact at each site.
