YMCA Neath: improving opportunities, and the quality of life
YMCA Neath is a thriving charitable organisation, providing a wide range of educational, recreational, and sporting activities for people of all ages from pre-school children through to senior citizens.
A wholly self-funded, non-profit making organisation; YMCA Neath offers a relaxed and friendly environment in which to learn new skills, and to meet new people.
Located within a Communities First area (Neath North), and close to areas of deprivation suffering from high levels of unemployment; Neath YMCA supports projects working with children, socially excluded young people, the unemployed, older people, those with disabilities, young parents, parents/carers, and the community in general.
Part of the wider YMCA movement, working in 150 countries; YMCA Neath is one of 15 Welsh associations. The building and land are freehold and owned by the YMCA Neath Board of Management.
If you wish to improve your fitness levels or to learn a wide range of new skills such as learning to speak Welsh, play the piano or the ukulele; come to YMCA Neath. From walking groups to boxfit classes; from gymnastics to martial arts – you can find it on offer here.
We continue to work with local groups, organisations and charities. Some, such as the mental health charity POBL and Swansea City AFC’s registered charity, the Community Trust have chosen to base themselves with us; while others, such as Shaw Trust, Western Division South Wales Police Youth Volunteers, and the Cylch Chwarae Castell – Nedd Welsh Playgroup deliver sessions from our building.
