What We Do

YMCA Glenrothes is an independent local charity which is governed by local volunteers from Fife and affiliated to the worldwide YMCA movement. The charity works with many other organisations in Fife as well as YMCAs in Scotland.

All three sites deliver community opportunities and two also provide supported homeless accommodation. The charity is supported by many volunteers with around 20 people giving regular and consistent
service.

Y Academy

In early 2017, YMCA Glenrothes secured funding from the Big Lottery Fund to support the delivery of the Y Academy.

Y Music

After receiving funding from Creative Scotland, Y Music launched in August 2017.  

Y Supported Accommodation

YMCA Glenrothes has managed homeless accommodation since 1992. It was the first Fife charity of its kind to offer shelter and support for vulnerable young homeless people in Fife. 

Follow on Tenancy Support

In July 2018, YMCA Glenrothes secured funding from the Bank of Scotland Foundation to aid the delivery of Follow on Support for residents moving on to their own tenancies. 

Empty Homes

YMCA Glenrothes is actively responding to the issue of homelessness in Fife by renovating empty properties and turning them into homes for people who have experienced homelessness.

PSP Shared Accommodation Pilot

YMCA Glenrothes has managed a range of supported accommodation in Glenrothes and neighbouring villages for many years.  The type of accommodation on offer suits people at various stages of their lives, so someone can either share in a hostel, live with one or two other people in a supported flat, all prior to moving into their own tenancy in the community.
