Helping people live happier, healthier and more fulfilled lives.
Central YMCA was the world’s very first YMCA. Today we work independently as a leading UK health, education and wellbeing charity. We’re all about mind, body and spirit and we believe in helping people to live happier, healthier and more fulfilled lives.

Eudaimonia! Good ideas for living well

We’ve been a pioneer in the wellbeing of London since 1844 and we want to continue to invest in its future. Our core purpose has always been mind, body and spirit but have we lost the connection? We want to explore this, starting with an exciting event to discuss what it really means to live well in London.
