The Central YMCA mission is to inspire and empower through opportunities to flourish in mind, body and spirit.

We aim to make people’s lives happier, healthier and more fulfilled through a unique blend of education and well-being provision.

Traditional education doesn’t suit everybody, and many young people need alternative opportunities if they are to find fulfilling employment. We, therefore, provide and accredit further education to tens of thousands of students each year and seek to ensure that everybody, regardless of background, has the chance to succeed.

We’re also acutely aware that fulfilment, happiness and health are underpinned, not just by the mind, the body and the spirit, but by a unison of all three. Consequently, we also provide fitness courses and community-centered gym facilities that are more than just fitness-factories, where people have the chance to develop inside and out.

Through our work, we aim to be the most trusted charity in vocational education and well-being. We hope to tackle the challenges of our time through innovative products and programmes and to transform individuals and communities.
