About Us

Self-confident, creative and healthy people and communities

The YMCA was once the natural home for Pontypridd’s social and cultural life. It was the town’s leading venue for live music, a centre for physical and creative engagement, a place of learning and personal development and a focus for young people.

The redevelopment project aims to bring that role into the 21st century by creating a facility that can amplify the energy and vitality of the Valleys. The new building’s dynamism and influence will resonate through the whole of South Wales bringing people into Pontypridd; promoting the Town as a resurgent centre for the Valleys; and sending out its young people as ambassadors for the creativity and vivacity of Rhondda Cynon Taff.
