Bath YMCA is a large charitable organisation based in the centre of the historic city of Bath but operating across, Bath and North East Somerset, South Gloucestershire and Wiltshire carrying out a variety of different work. We run a number of different activities including; our main Hostel building in central Bath which can accommodate up to 220 people including some short term social housing accommodation. This building is also host to a Health & Fitness Suite and our Bath Childcare Nursery which cares for children age from 18 months to 5 years old. In addition to this we operate an additional 5 childcare nurseries in the nearby towns of Malmesbury, Melksham & Trowbridge, which care for children aged from birth to 5 years old. For older children we offer two After School Clubs, two Breakfast Clubs and one Holiday Club, all of which are based in Bath. We also have a community fitness center called Activate which is based at Roundhill in Bath, a youth singing project called Tensing which is located in Bristol along with our recently opened Youth Café – The Kitchen@The Station. We also operate a youth and community center located in the nearby town of Timsbury.
Bath YMCA works with local people, local businesses, local authorities and other local social enterprises to provide and respond to changing and developing needs of our community focusing primarily on youth.
