A warm welcome to The Boathouse Youth. A Youth Club with a heart: in the heart of Blackpool.
Our intention was to interact with our young people when they were attending our activities but also in their schools, their homes and by having a presence in the local community. We were also committed to providing our children and young people with the opportunity to explore environments away from Blackpool by regularly providing with residential experiences.
We now proudly state that our early aims have been achieved. We have three solid departments: A Youth Centre, a Detached & Outreach Team and Activities & Residential Section. The combination of these departments means that the children and young people of the Blackpool community have a 7-day programme of activities, fully planned school holiday activities and regular opportunities to attend residential experiences.
As a registered charity none of our income is guaranteed. We rely on grants, donations and support at the annual events delivered by our fundraising committee. To find out about how to donate to us – please click here. We also generate income through Boathouse First Aid Training, which provides high quality Paediatric, and ‘At Work’ First Aid Qualifications.
We invite you to explore our and find out what we have to offer the children and young people of Blackpool.
WHAT DO WE DO?
The Boathouse Youth provides a comprehensive Youth Service to the Children & Young People of Blackpool with specific input in the Bloomfield and Waterloo Communities of South Shore. We offer youngsters an unbeaten variety of positive educational and recreational activities with a view to diverting them away from anti-social and risk-taking behaviour. Our primary aim is to help develop young people that are confident and competent to participate in a civilised adult society whilst never failing to recognise their contributions as children. Our organisation has three separate departments with each one complementing the others to ensure that our approach is attractive to all young people regardless of their background, personalities or interests. We work with children and young people from Aged 5 to 18 across five different age-sections.
