YMCA - Flyde Coast

About Us

Fylde Coast YMCA is an inclusive organisation providing high quality services and activities across Health and Physical Activity, Housing, Outdoor Education, Young People and Training sectors.

Rented housing

Our activities are guided by the local communities in which we work and by the need to remove the barriers preventing individuals from realising their full potential.

With a special emphasis on the development of young people, we strive to work holistically with all people who come through the door of the YMCA – empowering them to develop in mind, body and spirit. In 2015/16 we enhanced the lives of 13,000 young people across our four programme areas.

We do this by empowering young people with the right skills and education to enable their participation in decisions that affect them. Fylde Coast YMCA supports families, through engaging younger children in early year’s education, working with schools in the provision of health and childcare and through family mediation programmes.  Fylde Coast YMCA is recognised for its work with homeless young people and those at risk, working with them through supported accommodation, helping them make a successful transition to interdependent adulthood and sustained tenancy.  Fylde Coast YMCA is also the largest provider of community-based sports, health, fitness and physical activity programmes in the Fylde Coast.

Our ambition is to become recognised as a leading provider in the North West of activities which transform lives.
