Empowering young people through education, recreation and wellbeing

Since our humble beginnings way back in 1898, we’ve been helping and supporting children and young people in Lancashire every way we can. We give them safe spaces to talk, socialise, make friends and acquire new skills in environments free from judgement or discrimination.

Fundraising provides vital support for the club

The club relies on support and are ever grateful for the individuals and business who work with us.

It’s not just funds that the club needs we love to engage with local business and use their knowledge to teach the young people about different aspects of their work and teach them skills they can use later in life.

At our sessions we aim to get the young people involved in as many different activities as possible.
