Proud to be

Blackpool's leading youth charity

The Boathouse Youth is an amazing charity providing fully-funded opportunities for children and young people across Blackpool that are designed to improve their childhoods whilst securing their future success.

We provide a wide variety of activities and projects for children and young people Age 5 to 17, from universal and open-access services to targeted and intensive support programmes. Our work strives to restore-confidence, boost self-esteem and, above all, bring joy to the hearts of our communities so that we can prevent today’s young people becoming another lost generation of those who face the risk of living in poverty.

Children and young people involved with The Boathouse Youth can expect high-quality and age-specific activities, delivered by a team of professional staff, in local community-based facilities close to their home – all free-of-charge.

I have made some very special friends and the leaders have always been so patient with me and encouraged me to do things that I would never have tried before. Boathouse helps me more than they will ever know.
