What is YMCA LEAP?

We are the leading provider of inclusive recreational opportunities for people with a disability.

Our LEAP services help you to try new things, engage with your community and live an active, healthy life. Most of all LEAP is about meaningful FUN.

YMCA LEAP services are NDIS friendly and can be included on your plan. We will work with you to establish and achieve your goals in the area of recreation and community participation.

As a not-for-profit organisation , we are supported by government funding, contributions by people who use our services and the generosity of donors and supporters.

 We Believe:

  • Fun – a basic right that if met improves quality of life, health and general longevity
  • For Every Body – wherever the YMCA operates these programs can be accessed
  • Community – we are always part of the community, never shut off or isolated
  • Affordable – your ability to contribute will not block access
  • Flexible – We embrace individuality and we will help to build a program that works for you

LEAP into Life – our Recreation Consultancy service that connects you with recreation activities of all types, with whatever level of support you require. From a phone consult to a longer term connection that takes you through to full participation in you chosen group/activity.

LEAP Takers – Transitional day programs that build skills for community engagement, socialisation and community life. These programs are available for people taking a leap between one life stage and the next – from school to adulthood, from working to retirement and all transitions in between. This isn’t a time limited program but rather you choose the journey and how long it takes for you.

Youth Konnections – A program for teens aged 12-18 on the Autism spectrum. Come make new friends, experience new things, share information and have fun. We meet weekly during school terms.

LEAP OSHC – Operating at Adelaide North Specialist school this OSHC program is tailored to the needs of school aged children with special needs. We also operate Vacation Care for 5 – 15 year olds.

LEAP YMCA – All YMCA programs are LEAPable. Our team of passionate staff believe in making fun possible, conquering barriers to participation and in adapting environments not people.

We start by learning about you and what you find fun. Fun means different things to different people so it is important to take some time getting to know what Fun means to you.


Fun can be:

  • Learning a new skill
  • Challenging yourself
  • Trying something different
  • Meeting people and making friends
  • Doing things with others your age
  • Having something in common
  • Relaxing

OR whatever makes you smile, right the way to your eyes!
