ABOUT INCHGARTH Inchgarth community centre is based in Garthdee Aberdeen and is the cities busiest, largest, best equipped, and most successful centre that delivers services and opportunities of excellence. With 150 sessions of activity for every age in music, sports, fitness, education, recreation, leisure, art, the arts, support services, and outreach, then we are certain there’s something for everyone’s needs. Inchgarth was founded in 1984 following the closure of Inchgarth primary school with one quarter of the building remaining to become a community centre. Inchgarth has developed into a centre which is respected across all sectors where we take particular pride in our work with those with disabilities, the elderly, children and most vulnerable in society. In 2017 Inchgarth was recognised by Her Majesty the Queen via The Queen’s award for voluntary service which is the highest award in the Uk that an organisation can receive. It’s an MBE for Inchgarth and recognition of the tremendous volunteering and team effort at Inchgarth, while equally it highlights the esteem in which the centre is held. The centre has a bright future ahead of it with ambitious plans for a multi-million pound extension that will allow us to meet the growing demand for space, services, and opportunities for all ages. As a centre we never stand still, and this alone is the reason why Inchgarth is so unique, and will remain the leading community centre in Aberdeen. Come join us! You won’t regret it!
