Our priorities for the year ahead

Did you know that you work within one the oldest and largest youth charities in the world! Founded during the industrial revolution, YMCA staff have been responsible for inventing both basketball and volleyball, wearing poppies on Remembrance Sunday and we’ve been changing and enhancing lives of communities here on the Fylde Coast since 1922. Over the past 97 years we have extended our work into 9 communities and manage 18 sites working on our 4 programme areas; physical activity, housing, young people and outdoor education.

We believe that investment in developing stronger people in body, mind and spirit that create strong families and even stronger communities.

The document below outlines our challenges and vision for 2019 and beyond.
