Community and Activity Village
A community space unlike anywhere else in the UK
The YMCA Community and Activity Village is a transformational not-for-profit project designed to empower young people and families in Newark and Sherwood.
The project is driven by a passionate belief that everyone deserves the chance to belong, contribute and thrive.
In national reports, Newark and Sherwood has ranked as one of the worst areas in the country for social deprivation, with some wards facing life expectancies ten years less than UK national average.
YMCA Newark and Sherwood aims to make positive change through a community space that offers opportunities to everyone.
Facilities and programmes at the Village focus on three key areas – healthy living, youth development and social responsibility.
The Community and Activity Village is due for completion in 2021.
- Community café
- Further education
- Community training kitchen
- Function space
- Adult education classes
- Youth-led community projects
