YMCA is the oldest and largest youth charity in the world, set up by Sir George Williams in England in 1844. YMCA Southport is one of 133 local YMCAs running independently across England and Wales to support young people to belong, contribute and thrive in their communities.

YMCA focuses on young people, helping them to play an active and fulfilling role within their communities. We call this our youth-minded community approach. We also provide a wide range of community-based activities and services to help meet local needs.
