Wishaw YMCA has embarked on ambitious journey called Project Revive.

We are working towards funding to transform that facility into a flexible community space that would cater for community groups. Our vision is to restore the building to be operated as a community social enterprise that utilises the space as a wedding venue, concert hall, cinema and conference facility which will support reinvestment in the community as Non-Profit to provide program delivery that are core to YMCA principles. This is a long term capital project where we have already taken important steps towards our goal. Our new project office will enable us to be accessible to the local community and act as a base to support community engagement and to conduct public consultation in relation to the regeneration of our original premises.
