About Us

IMG_2741.JPG

Blackpool Boys & Girls Club has been established for over 80 years (est 1935) providing services for young people in the most deprived areas of Blackpool.

We use a variety of different methodologies through our youth work to identify individual and community needs. We open six evenings a week delivering youth work to young people aged 8-25 years. We run a fully inclusive club which is open to all and is a non-uniform organisation. We run sport activities, art projects, community events and undertake regular health projects.

To deliver our services we create a safe, dynamic and innovative environment within our youth clubs.

Whilst providing our activities within the clubs we hope to gain the trust of young people enabling us to build positive relationships that counteract any external negative influences they may encounter. By enhancing social and emotional skills and providing the tools to become engaged in the clubs, we can attain positive outcomes. What young people do in their leisure time can have a massive impact on their future. Evidence shows that positive activities can support the development of resilience to negative influences.

The clubs bring together young people from different backgrounds; we provide a range of positive activities and opportunities which enable young people to engage with positive adult role models.

We work with many “hard to reach” young people and offer them the chance to improve their lives by helping them gain confidence by providing opportunities for personal training and accreditation, whilst encouraging them to accept responsibility by getting involved in the community and by volunteering in the running of the club.
