Welcome to YMCA Tayside

We are passionate about empowering young people.

This empowerment takes many forms, depending on the young person and their stage in life. For some, it is simply providing a safe space to grow and develop. For others, it may be offering employability programmes to help  build a positive future, and for others it is meeting and supporting them in their own communities.

We provide a variety of youth work services and support programmes to young people aged 8-25, mainly from disadvantaged backgrounds. This includes those who require early intervention, those who are underachieving, those who have addiction issues, offender’s and those who have become homeless.

At YMCA Tayside we consider each individual young person and how we can best support them to take their next step.
