About Us

Serving the local community

Mission Statement:
Ashton, Wigan and District YMCA aims to meet the social, physical, spiritual and educational needs, of groups and individuals in their community, through developing and offering, quality based initiatives, activities and programmes, in order that people can truly belong, contribute and thrive.

Our Ethos:
We value each individual for what they uniquely bring to our organisation and setting and encourage achievement of personal potential through providing encouragement, support and nurture.

Funding:
As an incorporated Charity we are non-profit making and all monies raised through fund raising, services and activites are retained for reinvestment and improvement.

How we are managed:
We are members of the National and International YMCA movements but are locally self-governing through a board of voluntary Trustees, allowing us to respond to the needs of the local community to support every life stage.

We support: the vision of YMCA England for an inclusive Christian Movement, transforming communities so that all people truly belong, contribute and thrive and its belief that all people deserve to have a safe place to live and the opportunity to reach their full potential. Affiliation also means that we are part of the World Alliance of YMCAs.
